Sheshwe, The Sound of the Mines – Various Artists
Rounder 1988

The four bands we find on this collection of miners songs
have a quite similar sound. Maybe because they all share
the same bassplayer, Thomas Maseko. The musicians were
based in the Orange Free State of South Africa but all come
from the majestic mountain land Lesotho. Love the groove ..
