Hola mpinji! This is AFROSYNTH, the realest African selection...

KAYA - Xigangu Xaphorisa (1986)

Gallo GRC, XWI132   
Producer: Richard Siluma   
Engineers: Mark Baker & Sam Wingate                       


Innovative Shangaan pop produced by the man who launched Lucky Dube's reggae career around the same time, Richard Siluma. The two tracks on this album weigh in at seven minutes each, so it's hardly the kind of frenetic power-pop usually associated with the genre, but it's packed full of fresh synth sounds.
