THE PEACE BROTHERS - Umshado 'Uyisibusiso' (1982)

Rainbow/WEA, CGH5003
Producer: Maxwell Mngadi
Engineer: Graham Handley


Not to be confused with the pioneering kwaito crew Brothers of Peace, The Peace Brothers put out slick uptempo mbaqanga produced by guitar maestro Maxwell Mngadi (Soul Brothers, The Super Tens, Soul Fire, Imitshotshovu). The title track and album cover make the questionable assertion: "marriage is a blessing".
