Grazin’ In The Dusk w/Sumthin Brown 26.10.2020
For the second edition of Grazin’ in the Dusk, @sumthinbrown returns to pay special tribute to the Zulu Rock Queen, uMaNjomane Wase Langeni, the late Mam’ Busi Mhlongo with a wide selection of South African music styles she dominated and excelled in, such as Maskandi, Mbaqanga Jazz and Marabi as well as a mix of other styles such as funk, rock, jazz, reggae and West African music, which she drew from heavily and mixed with traditional Zulu music to pioneer and champion a sound that was uniquely hers.
Busi Mhlongo sang and made “music played by the man on the move, the modern minstrel, today’s troubadour. It is the music of the man walking the long miles to court a bride, or to meet with his Chief; a means of transport. It is the music of the man who sings of his real-life experiences, his daily joys and sorrows, his observations of the world. It’s the music of the man who’s got the Zulu blues.” – Durban Online
