The member of Amabutho come from all over South Africa and continues the South African tradition of combining influences from various cultures and styles. Musically complex and completely joyful. Featuring those tight vocal harmonies for which South African vocal groups are known. Play it all, dearies.

1. Upbeat and lively w/busy percussion & great vocals.
2. Percussion opens then layers of energetic goodness.
3. Bright and happy w/driving perc. Sweet.
4. Big percussion w/complex interplays. Then big vocals. Yow!
5. Happy and swaying w/lots of energy & style.
6. Great a capella intro, then drums & big chorus.
7. Happy percussion intro to soaring call/response vox.
8. Bright percussion into a midtempo vocal swarm.
9. Upbeat w/energetic vocals and wild style.
10. Cool percussion showcase with layers and tempos. So good.
