T.S.D. MASEVE NAHLAYISANI SISTERS - Ixikuma Kumane (1990)

Leopard/Hit City, LEO(H)020
Producer: Thomas 'Makhulela Endleleni' Motshwane
Engineer: RF Gumbi
Recorded at: Platinum


As was often the case with South Africa music, the best results came about when musicians and producers of various backgrounds defied apartheid rules and collaborated. So although the final product here is an album of Tsonga music, giving it that superior touch are top players like Felani Gumbi and Vuka Mbele who handle all keyboards, including plenty of spacey samples. Frontman T.S.D. Maseve plays bass and in his notes makes it clear that his music is for one and all: “My thanks to all the people who worked on this album with me. I hope all of you will enjoy my Tsonga Music.”
