1. Grazing in the Grass
Recorded in 1968. This track first got Masekela noticed internationally. Lost in melodic meditation, he charms cool township phrases to flirt with rippling blasts of African melodies! Masekela!
2. Mandela (Bring Him Home) Masekela cooked up this massive storm of a track to celebrate the incredible excitement that greeted the release of Nelson Mandela from jail! If the power of a song can hold the rhythmic breath of the world, history would always be victorious!
3. Don’t Go Lose it, Baby. Dis is a blasta disco stomper a la Masekela’s Keteke days in Accra, Ghana! Dance, dance dance! Platform shoes or slippers!
4. Rekpete – A refreshing fusion of Ga mashie rhythms and quick step Soweto Township Jazz. When this song blew, there was no challenger on the Atlantic coast – From Lagos to the Super Eagles in the Gambia. Tell us if you know…We are still trying to decipher the true meaning of Rekpete!
5. Chileshe Unique melodies heard in African heaven. Powerful male voices provoking delicate moves of hips and arms flapping beautifully in the winds…What about the tongue-twisting lyrics of seduction and love?
