Zulu Jive, Umbaqanga
Urban & Rural Zulu Beats
from South Africa
Various Artists, Carthage 1984

Zulu Jive, voorkant

Hallo, als er iets opvalt in Zuid Afrikaanse muziek is het wel
de eeuwige opgewektheid. Ook al passeren er thema’s die
minder vrolijk stemmen, de muziek klinkt altijd alsof er een
feestje gaande is. Uit 1984 stamt deze schijf met onvervalste
‘Umbaqanga’ ofwel zulu jive zoals de titel al doet vermoeden.
Laat er maar een dansje op los hoor..

Hello, eventhough themes are sometimes a bit less on the
happy side, South African music always sounds as if there’s a
party going on. From 1984 w’ve got this slice of ‘umbaqanga’
or zulu jive as the title already suggests. Music made to dance
to, so let go, the makers sure meant you to..
