Electric Jive "Classic Mbaqanga Girl Groups Vol. 2" (Free Download)

"The black South African music scene of the 1960s and ‘70s was dominated by a unique electric jive sound that was later christened mbaqanga. For almost its entire near-twenty year rule over the country, mbaqanga’s most distinctive feature was the all-female close harmony sound, sometimes augmented by the booming bass vocals of a gruff male singer. The girl group of South Africa was partly modelled on the girl group of the USA... Today, Electric Jive presents another special mix of tunes: Classic Mbaqanga Girl Groups – Vol. 2."
