Album Review

Fabulous South African gospel music. Regardless of your religious beliefs, this music will make you feel good. Featuring unearthly harmonies, much joy, and a delicious musicality. It’s all amazing, but these are the best. Some tracks in English. No FCCs.

1. Light drumming backs this wonderful midtempo gospel ode.
2. Relaxed, soaring blend of gospel track & classic SA anthem.
4. Traditional downtempo gospel.
5. Happy, bouncy Afro-pop w/a bit of funk & lots of energy.
7. A capella track w/a “Ladysmith” flavor. Vocal trills. Slowish.
8. Lightly funky version of “Oh Happy Day.”
9. Down/midtempo w/a great female soloist. Just gorgeous.
10. Starts slow, gets into an uptempo jam. Slow again… very cool.
11. Hip, swaying a capella version of a gospel classic. So good.
13. Slow, stately and lovely w/great harmonies. Really pretty.
15. Slow version of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”
18. Elegant, heartfelt version of the South African anthem.
