YVONNE CHAKA CHAKA - The Rhythm Of Life (1991)

Teal, RBL185
Producer: Attie van Wyk
Engineer: Fernando Perdigao
Recorded at: Powerhouse


Another disappointing album from the overrated 'Princess of Africa'. Titles capture the volatile politics and spirit of change at the time, like 'Let's Get Together', 'Brother Hold My Hand', "Who's Got The Power' and 'He Never Came Home', while 'Uganda' is a nod to Yvonne's fans in East Africa.
