DAVID CHANKE - Xhimovana (1988)

SKR/Priority, SRH9003
Producer: Dan Ntanzi
Engineer: J Vermeulen
Recorded at: Audiotrax 
   

More obscure bubblegum grooves, split between Shangaan tracks on side 1 and Zulu on side 2 (something seldom permitted by state censors until the late 80s). Stinging synthesizers, upbeat dance rhythms and urgent call-and-response vocals from the ladies make this album yet another long-forgotten winner.
