JAZINO - Sibharara (1990)

Roi/Music Team, ETL5024
Producer: Heavu Mazibuko
Engineer: Graham Handley

Uptempo pre-kwaito grooves by one Jazino Maribatsi and his female backing singers The Golden Tones. Produced by Heavy Mazibuko, who that year also produced the similarly styled Mashedo. Following the influence of Chicco and others, the album shows how by the end of the 80s most American influences had been shed in favour of homegrown grooves and vernacular lyrics.
