LINGANISA NABAFANA BEJUBANE - Umakoti (1989)

Soul Brothers, MXH7
Producer: David Masondo
Engineer: Fernando Perdigao & RF Gumbi


The Soul Brothers label is synonymous with the enduring quality of the band it's named after, and the skills and professionalism of David Masondo and Black Moses Ngwenya. Umakoti (bride) is deep, mellow, timeless traditional Zulu maskandi, a far cry from the Soul Brothers' mbaqanga pop.
