Excellent AfroPop for those with happy feet.

"Here is some great upbeat, harmonius music. The instrumentation is Western (guitar, bass, drums and the occasional synthesizer) but the vocals are not of this hemisphere. The contrast of Malathini's groaning with the gorgeous harmonies of the Mahotella Queens is striking and adds to the fun set up by the driving rhythm and lilting guitar. This is essential AfroPop music. It is unfortunate that I Wanna Dance is the only song available for sampling. It is basically a disco dance tune that is easily the worst song on the disc and is not at all representative of the rest of the music. If you could just hear a bit of the first four songs I am confident you'd pop Thokozile into your shopping cart."
Thokozile must be heard!

"That title track rocks! In my view, its the best example of South African pop music, whose history drew so profoundly from the jazz and then rock and roll sounds that came out of America to seduce black Africa."
Amazing album

"Saw these guys at a club around 1990. This album has all the energy of their concert. Very good quality recording! If you like African music, this is a must have."
