1 - ABAVUKI - AFRICA GOT SOUL - (CD) 
PRESTIGE


When Prestige Elite Records approached Barney Rattle to make a classic soul album from South Africa he looked into his growing stable of musicians both in South Africa and worldwide to help create a genuinely good and surprisingly fresh mainstream tribute album to some of the greatest songs of the 70's Producer Barney Rattle has been working in the townships of western cape of South Africa for over 10 years, opening a school for kids in the late 90's and is responsible for the production of over ten records from South Africa through his label New World Africa Records. Abavuki is a group of young musicians from Langa, a township near Cape Town in South Africa. The name "Abavuki" which means "Wake up, early birds!" refers not only to their youth, but also to their philosophy of seizing the moment and getting things done for themselves. They developed love for music at a young age and started playing with various groups.Towards the end of 2001, they came together and began creating their unique brand of African Jazz. Using marimbas, percussion, brass instruments and even an operatic trained voice, weaving traditional African rhythms and melodies into a contemporary format, which is highly danceable and almost Latin American in feel.tracklist;1.Stand By Me2.Papa Was A Rolling Stone3.Hold On I'm Coming4.Tears Of A Clown 5.Be Thankful For What Youve Got6.Say A LIttle Prayer7.Preacherman Vibes 8.Son Of A Preacher Man9.Shame Shame Shame10.Let's Get It On 11.I Heard It Through The Grapevine 12.Lovely Day 13.Soul Man 14.Aint No Sunshine15.Papa Was A Rolling Stone (DJ Stan_ley Ingroove Mix)
