FRISCO SHIKUNDU & SISTERS - Manana (1985)

Roi/CTV/ETL, ETL(E)5004
Producer: Tom Maseko
Engineer: Jan Smit


Tsonga music (closely related and at times used interchangeably with 'Shangaan') relying heavily on interesting new synth sounds and drum machine beats that would soon develop into the 'Shangaan disco' of Penny Penny and more recently the 'Shangaan electro' of Nozinja, both now enjoying international attention.
