Next Stop Soweto … Vol 3

Strut conclude their essential three-part excursion into the archives of South African music… Volume 3 is a long overdue retrospective of the rich jazz scene happening in South Africa! The album features many of the recognized South African jazz greats like saxophonist Dudu Pukwana and drummer Early Mabuza, the potent soul jazz grooves of The Heshoo Beshoo Group and The Drive and some of the many artists creating unique fusions like Philip Tabane’s Malombo mixing African drums and hand percussion with guitar, vocal and flute. This is important music, a defiant statement in the face of unimaginable cultural repression.
