Mahotella Queens – Izibani Zomgqashiyo,Earthworks 1977

If you are into Zulu Jive, the South African music of the people,
you better don’t miss this one. This is one of their best albums.
The Mahotella Queens are here with their backing group, Makhona
Zonke Band. They are also accompanied by their ‘male groaners’
Robert Mbazo Mkhize, Potatoes Mazambane or Joseph Mthimkhulu.
The Queens are Emily Zwane from Brakpan,
Thandi Radebe from Dube ( Soweto ),
Beatrice Ngcobo from Durban,
Thandi Nkosi from Emdeni ( Soweto )
and Caroline Kapentar from Bloemfontein.
They are considered the best Mgqashiyo entertainers in Southern Africa.
Maybe someone can explain to us why on the cover they speak of five
queens while pictures show only four of them ? Strange.
An early post this saturday, so much football I don’t want to miss,
we, The Netherlands, shall play Japan this afternoon and later we get
Ghana – Australia and Cameroon – Denmark. Great day of sports
in South Africa, let this music make you dance through it.
By the way, just the cover we need today, lots of orange, catch my drift ?

  1. I was just about to rip this from my Vinyl Album (which is pretty buggered) to play on my iPod when joy of joys Moos posts this one in a much better condition than my own. I’m truly thankful.
    I’ve cleaned it up using ClickRepair and it sounds glorious.

    dank voor het delen
