South African soul from Caiphus Semenya
– and a set that's got a nicely righteous, upbeat vibe throughout! Caiphus
works here in that best sort of South African style in the decade when the nation's struggles were getting a lot more global attention – showing a spirit that refuses to be dimmed, as Semenya
's often backed by a group of female singers that includes Letta Mbulu, who worked on the record with Caiphus
! There's a bubbling, uplifting sound here that's great – very pure, and not of the more watered-down style of others who would soon borrow from the scene – on titles that include "Matswale", "Nomalanga", "Aida", "Mamase", "Moshanyana", and "Ndi Kulindile".
