  • Mahotella Queens - AFH268

    5:57

    Performance - 9 July 2006
    Back in the summer of 1988, when the newly born world music beast started chomping through the undergrowth of the mainstream music industry, our nation’s arts centres caught their first glimpses of South Africa’s Mahotella Queens. Touring just as the thick fog of apartheid was clearing (and in the company of gravel-voiced ‘king of the groaners’ Mahlathini and the drum-tight Makgona Tsohle Band), the Queens introduced us to the potency of mbaqanga, the township jive so long denied us by cultural boycotts. Through their live shows, albums like Thokozile and Paris, Soweto, and even a collaboration with The Art Of Noise (remember them?), this Sowetan supergroup slayed us all, their songs of protest and resistance becoming the celebratory soundtrack of a new nation. A decade and a half on (and a good 40+ years from their embryonic days as a vocal trio), the Queens are still in joyous mood – the passion, power and velvet-smoothness of their three-part vocals failing to show even the slightest trace of wear or tear. When it comes to the indestructible beat of Soweto, these three wonderful women are among its true pioneers.In A Few Words… South African vocal diamonds

  • Mahotella Queens - Uyavutha Umlilo

    2:49

    A classic song from the Mahotella Queens, Uyavutha Umlilo (The fire is burning), from 1971. The Queens are backed by the irrepressible Makhona Tsohle Band and fronted, as usual, by the brilliant groaner Simon Mahlathini Nkabinde on lead vocals. Hilda Tloubatla leads the Queens line-up.

    The song, which Mahlathini and the Queens re-recorded in 1987 for their international debut album Thokozile, stipulates how their sound is the best sound there is to find - 'siyagiya unyawo olusha iJive Makgona!' (we're doing the new modern craze, Jive Makgona!).

    Original song as taken from vinyl, with self-made video containing pictures of Mahlathini, the Queens, and the Makhona Tsohle Band.

    [Liner Notes]
    Formed in 1964, the Mahotella Queens are the premier mbaqanga harmony group. Backed by the Makgona Tsohle Band, they have released many brilliant records over the years. The Queens' music has tight punchy sweet vocals, call and response with groaners, and rock steady backing. The Mahotella Queens call their music mgqashiyo - the indestructible beat. This is a tough mix of traditional and urban sounds. Soaring with unlimited energy, the Mahotella Queens sing their bright, hymn-like, exacting harmonies.
    In concert performances they appear wearing beaded and jeweled Zulu costumes, regally and sensually dancing in perpetual motion. Mbaqanga looks back to traditional was, to a time before apartheid. THe music of the Mahotella Queens provides a much-needed escape from reality. MARRIAGE IS A PROBLEM presents great singing by South Africa's pre-eminent female vocal group.

  • Mahotella Queens - Ziyatshitshimba Izintombi

    2:46

    From their LP “Izibani Zomgqashiyo” (Gumba Gumba BL-111) released in 1977. “Ziyatshitshimba Izintombi” has so much going on vocally and harmoniously that it’s completely impossible not to carried away in the sheer brilliance of this whole sound. Exhilaration is the word I think I’m looking for. 11 years on from their debut LP and the Mahotella Queens are flying high. Google translate looks a bit dubious on this one, I'm not going there!

    2:41

    From their LP “Izibani Zomgqashiyo” (Gumba Gumba BL-111) released in 1977. “Uthuli Lwezichwe” (“Dance Up A Dust Storm”) seems celebratory and oozes soul, not a bit diffused by the high energy dance-able nature of the track. This was, in effect, gospel for the townships.
