Best African music finds 2017 # 5

The New Brothers -Emakhuneni

CTV International CT 86 1990 South Africa

The New Brothers -cover watermarked

‘Emakhuneni’ was produced by Dumisani Ngcobo & Felani Gumbi who also wrote most of the material on this rare album.  The music is a gentle heady mix of funky organ and electric guitar driven rhythms. But the singing style and harmonies prove to be the real turn on for me. Listen to a few of my favourite tracks of this album.

Great cover by the way! Who came up with the motor helmets first? Daft Punk or The New Brothers?? I guess The New Brothers….
