Product description

Amazon.co.uk

Those who have heard the Amandla! soundtrack will no doubt remember South African singer Vusi Mahlasela. His passionate, octave-leaping voice on "When You Come Back" sets a tone for the album, which adeptly documents the political and social music surrounding Nelson Mandela and the movement he led. In fact, Mahlasela actually sang at Mandela's inauguration, having been a veteran of many ANC rallies as well as a popular music figure. Signed by Dave Matthews to Ato, Mahlasela first domestic release collects 14 songs from his five South African albums. Some of The Voice's songs have a glossy world music sheen that isn't far from Peter Gabriel's recent work, but the album is balanced by songs in the more traditional and acoustic vein. Highlights include the bluesy "Red Song," which tells the story of three friends taking up arms for apartheid, the moody "Troubadour," and "Fountain," where Mahlasela’s vocal gymnastics will thrill fans of Youssou N'Dour. This is a must for fans of African pop music. --Tad Hendrickson

A wonderful representation of African music with some traditional sounds, some contemporary messages and all delivered by the beautiful voice of Vusi Mahlasela. If you enjoy world music, especially relatively traditional but modern African sounds, this is worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 13 Feb. 2010
By Squirrel Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I heard one of Vusi's songs on NPR. I liked it enough to buy this CD. There are 3 tracks that I played over and over. If we were still listening on vinyl, I would have worn those songs out. The other songs were good, but my favorite were unbelievable--and that's with me not understanding any of the non-English.

When I looked at the listing here on Amazon, there are 13 tracks. My CD has 14. Amazon is missing "Untitled" in the list of songs (and its one of my special songs).

This is a must-have for anyone serious about contemporary South African music. Vusi Mahlasela definitely shows why he is called The Voice in South Africa and beyond.

Vusi Mahlasela is so sweet, so hot. The lyrics, the licks, the tone of his voice, all get me right where I live!
I want every one of his albums now. Here is the link to his Amazon community:

This is a great album. I learned about Vusi when he was featured on NPR. The mp3 download went without a hitch.
