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

KATLEHONG CHOIR - N'kosi ya Makosi (1986)

Racey/Orange338, RACES301-12"
Producers: PH Phaake, C Sejeng & E Nkosi
Engineer: Marks Mankwane


Funky gospel grooves from Joburg's East Rand, with a vintage bubblegum feel. The B-Side instrumental does away with the religious message to let the synths shine through. Co-produced by PH Phaake (also behind hitmaker Kelly Chauke) and Charles Sjeng (Q-Tex), while engineer Marks Mankwane is a legend in his own right, most notably backing Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens.
