Mahube Music From Southern Africa

This celebratory and exciting album is the latest from the Sheer Sound label. 'Mahube' is the name given to this collection of top Southern African musicians and vocalists who combined to record and release this album that will be performed live in SA at a series of concerts from late January to early February this year.

Eleven prominent artists combined under the direction of Steve Dyer to create this vibrant blend of contemporary and celebratory Southern African styles including Oliver Mtukudzis, Suthukazi Arosi, George Phiri, Feya Faku, Sean Fourie and Barry van Zyl.

The name 'Mahube' means 'New Dawn' in Tswana and reflects these musicians desire to participate in South Africa's reintegration into the cultural life of the African subcontinent. The music is a rich and seamless blend of infectious rhythms, soaring vocals and harmonies and includes songs like 'Ndiwe Muroyi', 'Ziwere', 'Bambanani' and the title track. The intricate and evocative harmonies are under-pinned by a wonderful brass section and surrounded by a clear and sympathetic arrangement. The band's enthusiasm spills out over this jazzy and traditional album and I'm sure 'Mahube' will gain the recognition it deserves as a result of the upcoming concerts.
