MTHENJWA ZWANE - Shimo La Pondo (1986)

Fen City/Blue Tree/Priority, FL53
Producer: Sipho Kheswa
Engineer: Dane Stevenson
Special Sithole & Nkatazo
Recorded at: Blue Tree

Don't be fooled by the disco suit and neon cover, this is vintage maskandi from the old school, full of elaborate guitar flourishes and with hardly a synth in sight. Deep, soulful grooves reminiscent of the Madlala Brothers, Ihashi Elimhlophe and Izindlovu, and many others. Produced by the underrated Sipho Kheswa.
