HARAMBE - Nweti Yi Herile (1986)

Umhlanga, UMM005
Producers: Rev. Joseph Tshawane & Cloud King

Funky bubblegum grooves packed full of synths. Sadly this obscure four-track album slipped below the radar, probably due to it being in Tsonga, although one of the tracks, 'Sunshine Lady', is in English. The Reverend Joseph Tshawane went on in 1987 to open the King-Luthuli Transformation Centre in central Joburg and dedicated his time to education.
