hey sista, go sista, soul sista -Township Soul & Boogie
disco-ball greentoday’s post features a selection of genuine Township Soul & Boogie. Recorded, released and distributed in South Africa and neighbouring countries between 1981 to 1984. All 45’s originally come from the archives of a defunct radio station in Hillbrow, Jo’burg, hence the stickers on the labels. Some of these original records are extremely hard to trace  after all these years, especially in the wild.  ‘Bushman’ by Steve Kekana is well recommended  and  one of the better known titles . For me, the discovery of the soulful “Hamba Sibali Wami” by Masike’ Funky’ Mohapi remains one of the highlights of this compilation. Let’s go singing, let’s go dancing! From Cape to Nassau….

  2. Very happy to have discovered this amazing blog.

    Particularly blown away by the track ‘Dudu Mazibuku & The Paper Dolls -Disco Beat’… Seems to be totally untraceable on the internet.. Any idea if there’s any chance I can get hold of a vinyl or higher quality digital?… maybe I already know the answer based on your write-up…but always worth a try… 🙂

    Look forward to hearing more..and thanks..
