Afrika Mamas return with their fifth release Ilanga (The Sun).
A stunning album of a cappella music.
Their take on John Lennon’s Imagine, rearranged with Zulu vocal accompaniment, is something to behold. The album also includes songs written with the sons of the late Joseph Shabalala - the founder of Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
As ever, the ladies deliver a powerful album addressing community issues in South Africa and a hopeful message for the future. “Astounding Zulu singers” - Songlines magazine
