3 - VARIOUS (SOUL SAFARI PRESENTS) - TOWNSHIP JIVE & KWELA JAZZ, VOL. 3 - (LP) 
UBUNTU PUBLISHI


Soul Safari started as a blog to showcase the music of Africa with a strong emphasis on South Africa. Now in its 6th year, Soul Safari is proud to present the third volume of the compilation Township Jive & Kwela Jazz, a collection of rare gems originally released as shellac 78s in the period 1960-1965 in South Africa.On this third volume the selection features the gorgeous close harmony vocal groups singing in the tradition of American R & B and doo wop. But always with that typical South African swing and sung in the Zulu or Xhosa languages. DJ Eddy de Clercq who initiated this compilation, also selected a few tunes that stand for the transition from early jive to mbanqaga, a most democratic vocal style characterized by the typical 'groaning', a form of call and answer between the male leader (groaner) and female singers. Mbanqaga would follow up jive as the popular vocal music from 1965 onwards.Kwela jazz knew many variations in which the original instrument, the penny whistle was traded in for accordion, violin, even a melodica, an instrument that also became widely popular in Jamaica. Similarities with uptempo ska can be heard in tunes by Kid Ma Wrong Wrong and Bra Sello featured on this compilation. Again an exciting selection of rare recordings from the heyday of South African Jive & Kwela. Truly music treasures from a long gone past.

4 - VARIOUS (SOUL SAFARI PRESENTS) - TOWNSHIP JIVE & KWELA JAZZ, VOL. 4 - (LP) 
UBUNTU PUBLISHI


16 early vocal & jazzy tunes from the Golden Age of Jive & Kwela in South Africa. Released originally on fragile shellac discs only. Shellac is a very delicate material but the music survived thanks to the archives of ILAM. A truly great source of South African music is being preserved here for new generations, to inspire young and hopeful musicians and singers from all over the world. 180gram vinyl.These pearls of musical genius were recorded in the glory years of jive and kwela, the years 1940-1965 . On side A it is not difficult to recognise the similarities to American popular music like R&B and small combo close harmony singing. But most of all notice that typical South African swing, that jive, that incredible smooth form of African jazz on side B; Kwela!The rarest and most treasured finds are collected here, some with the original spoken intros, sketches as these were called. Characteristic conversations between the musicians, often in a humoristic slang, always extremely funny. Now available as the fourth issue in the series Township Jive & Kwela Jazz.
