UMAZAMBANE - Ne Nqotho Zakhe vol.2: Amadoda Ahlangene (1982)
Rainbow Records & Tapes / Chocolate City / WEA
Producer: Potatoes Zuma

Fantastic early 80s, gospel-tinged Zulu vibes, jampacked with spine-tingling synths, tasteful guitars licks and uplifting vocals, riding on a solid uptempo groove. Forget Juluka, this is the real deal! Highlights include "hambani mabhaca", "malume", and "nangu umalume"
