Music from Africa Vol. 2 Shangaan Traditional / Sotho Chant
Tom Mkhize & Various artists
Available in LP, CD, Digital
The ‘Music From Africa’ series’ comprises two volumes of never-heard South African library music from the early ’80s. They were recorded and produced by Johannesburg musician/producer Tom Mkhize and released then on vinyl only to be sent to TV and radio stations, as well as cinema productions (never commercially available). Traditional South African rhythms re-imagined, dubbed-out and disco-fied by this legendary producer! Each side of each volume is an A-Side of the original LP’s, the B-Sides were only 10/15 seconds loops of the tracks from A-Sides designed as radio jingles and there was no interest in keeping them for the reissues.
