IZAKHAMUZI - Kudala Kwenzeka (1986)

Teal, TEL2115   
Producer: GM Buthelezi                                   

No relation to the hotstepper Ini Kamoze, Izakhamuzi (the Citizens) put out tight mbaqanga grooves with a gospel touch. Full of smooth vocal harmonies and slick guitar and keyboard work, but nothing original here. Titles include 'Uxolo Bafowethu' (Peace, brothers).
