Lungile Masitha - Vuyani 12"
Lungile Masitha was the studio name for South African artist Sello ‘Chicco’ Twala, who played with such iconic bands as Harari and Umoja. In 1985 ‘Lungile Masitha’, here he linked up with friend Jimmy Mngwandi to co-write and arrange the two tracks ‘Vuyani’ & ‘Makoti’, both sung in his native Tsongan. Vuyani is an upbeat tune that matches Chicco’s unique vocal style with percolating drums and distorted choruses to incredible effect, while Makoti is a mellower blend of floating keys and choruses sung by local kids in an effort to expose “emerging talent”.
