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 78’s 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.
Sales Information:

All titles on this compilation have been handpicked from the ILAM Archives (the International Library of African Music), in Grahamstown, South Africa. The tracklisting represents a wide variety of styles from the golden era of Jive & Kwela, originally released on 78 shellac discs from small independent record companies . The compilation features rarities by the big names obviously but presents mostly obscure material from a long lost past. Recorded from the original 78 rpm’s and professionally restored/mastered with artwork to match.
