IZINSIZWA - Uthandabani? (1991)

Music Team, WHR(C)101
Producer: Bheki Ngcobo
Engineer: Danny Bridgens
Composer: Bheki Ngcobo
Recorded at: Kitchen Sync


Synth-heavy mbaqanga along the lines of the Soul Brothers, Abangani, Madlala Brothers and many others. Produced by Bheki Ngcobo (Ihashi Elimhlophe) and engineered by keyboard wizard Danny Bridgens. Best tracks ‘Isingehlule’ and ‘Intozami’ see Izinsizwa (the young men) replacing traditional Zulu guitar lines with uptempo synths for infectious, offbeat winners.
