Back in stock! 2016 repress of this landmark afro-jazz album from South Africa!

Matsuli follow up their brilliant Dick Khoza reissue with a deep spiritualised afro-jazz album from 1974!  An urgent Batsumi sound, reverbed-drenched, propulsive, tight-locked drums and mesmerising bass. Some of the tracks here featured on Strut's fabulous 'Next Stop To Soweto' compilation. Out of print since the 1970s, and never issued outside of South African in its entirety.
