Nik Weston Presents Letta Mbulu / Dick Khoza

Afro Funk Gems Volume Seven: South Africa

cover: Nik Weston Presents Letta Mbulu / Dick Khoza - Afro Funk Gems Volume Seven: South Africa

Two monumental South African groove-beauties for the latest installment of the Afro Funk Gems series from Mukatsuku. First up is a trip back to 1970, just three years after Letta Mbulu escaped apartheid and moved the US (and fifteen years before she collaborated with Michael Jackson on ''Librarian Girl'') the horn-laded, feel-good ''Mahlalela'' came from her third album and was licenced by Tamla Motown in South Africa too for a rare as hen's teeth 45. Flip for an edit from Mr Mukatsuku himself as he breaks down Dick Khoza and the Pelican Club house band's politically charged ''Chapita''. Stunning.
