Volume 2 in Strut's new wide-ranging three-part series exploring underground South African music during the late '60s and '70s. This time focusing on township R&B, Soul, Funk & Psyche 1969-76! With international forms of music discouraged by the South African authorities during the 1960s, township jive or Mbaqanga arose as innovative artists combined close harmony singing and traditional African styles with a bouncy township beat. Imported US music became strictly the domain of house parties, private record collections and underground she beans. Volume 2 of Next Stop. Soweto also touches on mbaqanga and jazz artists who dabbled with soul and funk fusions during the early "70s - the MGABABA QUEENS and MAHOTELLA QUEENS, and revered South African jazz combo THE HESHOO BESHOO GROUP. Also featured is a rare psychedelic track from one of the only recordings made of playwright GIBSON KENTE's acclaimed theatre pieces, "Too Late". The Next Stop. Soweto series is the result of several years of painstaking research and vinyl archaeology in South Africa by compilers DUNCAN BROOKER and FRANCIS GOODING.
