  • The Mahotella Queens - Qagala Women of Africa

    2:10

    Track 8 'Qagala' by the wonderful South African Mahotella Queens from the 1989 CD album 'Women of Africa' released by Sound Products, Holland. The Queens, often heard in concert and on record with deep-voiced groaner Simon Mahlathini, represent the South African township style with absolute perfection. Established in 1964 as a session harmony group, they came to prominence in the '70s with their tough vocal style and rock-solid mbaqanga backing band.

    The Mahotella Queens are still together today comprising Hilda Tloubatla, Nobesuthu Mbadu and Mildred Mangxola. The group is noted for their clear three-part harmonies, Mbaqanga township music and fast-paced mgqashiyo dancing.The Queens were formed by the famed South African talent scout Rupert Bopape, at Gallo Record Company, in 1964, and would go on to have many hits at Gallo's African music division, Mavuthela. Throughout the 1960s, the Queens' line-up usually comprised Hilda Tloubatla, Juliet Mazamisa, Ethel Mngomezulu, Nobesuthu Mbadu and Mildred Mangxola. They were backed by the Mavuthela house band, the Makhona Tsohle Band (comprising several talented instrumentalists including Marks Mankwane on lead guitar and West Nkosi on saxophone), and fronted by the deep-voiced Simon Mahlathini Nkabinde. After 1971, growing competition from rival groups saw the Queens' line-up fluctuate considerably, and after a string of mildly-successful late '70s hits, the original five Mahotella Queens regrouped with Mahlathini and Makgona Tsohle in 1983. After one more hiatus, three of the Queens - Hilda Tloubatla, Nobesuthu Mbadu and Mildred Mangxola - regrouped permanently.

    Although Mahlathini, Marks Mankwane and West Nkosi died between 1998 and 1999, the three Queens continue performing and recording - well into their 60s - to this day.

  • WOMADelaide 2007 - The Mahotella Queens

    29:17

    The Mahotella Queens – Hilda Tloubatla, Mildred Mangxola and Nobesuthu Mbadu – belong to the legend of urban South-African music. In the early 60s, together with Mahlathini («The Lion of Soweto») and the musicians of the Makgona Tsothle Band, they invented the Mbaqanga, an explosive style blending traditional music forms (Zulu, Sotho, Xhosa, Shangaan etc) and Marabi (South-African jazz in Apartheid times) with American Rhythm’n’Blues, Soul and Gospel, then heard throughout the townships. The Queens were far more than just a female chorus: their velvety voices, their charisma and their sense of show and stage were an essential element in the band.

    Indeed, behind this amazing vocal trio are inspired soloists, composers, lyricists and arrangers who have greatly contributed to the group’s rich recording work and concert tours. Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens sold millions of albums all over Southern Africa before the government of Pretoria broke up this impulse with a discrimination policy that doomed all forms of cultural activity.
    The hassles and problems confronting all artists, along with marriages and pregnancies, made them take a break in the 70s, but they rejoined Mahlathini and the band in the early 80s. Since then, they have not stopped recording and touring all over the world. The end of apartheid has allowed a whole new generation to discover the glories of their musical heritage.

    Since the death of Mahlathini and the main members of the Makgona Tsothle Band, the three queens have taken up the torch of the Mbaqanga. Their talent and vocal colour have been called upon by many artists, such as Paul Simon, Harry Belafonte, Ray Lema, Manu Dibango, Johnny Clegg and Baaba Maal. Boosted by all these experiences, they have enriched their musical range. These young, engaging, exceptional sexagenarians have gone through one of South Africa’s most sombre periods without anger or resentment, managing to retain the energy and humour of their twenties.
    Their new CD after four years testifies to this vitality. Recorded in Johannesburg and in Angoulême —where they had a resounding success at the 30th edition of the festival “Musiques Métisses”— this jubilant opus displays their subtle vocal harmonies, their sensitivity and their jive.

    The lyrics of their songs bear witness to the daily reality in the new South Africa: hopes of changes, liberty gained at great cost, yet also concern about the ravages of Aids and the increase in crime and violence. The Mahotella Queens denounce selfishness and assaults against women and children, yet they do so tactfully, with class and feeling. Women of the people, long oppressed, they never seek popularity or the easy way out.

    In turn soloists and back up singers, either a cappella or accompanied by exceptional musicians (Malagasy accordionist Régis Gizavo, South-African guitarist Louis Mhlanga and the likes) they have come up with one of their best records to date. 14 songs —most of them new— including breathtaking versions of two of their greatest hits: “Kazet” and “Mbube”.

    Let yourself be embarked on a journey to the rainbow nation — to dance and to dream!

  • Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens - Kazet

    4:10

    Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens (also known as Mahlathini Nezintombi Zomgqashiyo and Mahlathini and the Girls of Mgqashiyo) were a South African mbaqanga supergroup made up of the three musical acts linked together by talent scout and record producer Rupert Bopape at the Gallo Recording Company in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1964. The group composed of the following:

    The late Simon Mahlathini Nkabinde (1937–1999), a powerful singer in the basso-profundo groaning style.
    The girl group the Mahotella Queens (1964–present), known for their fast-paced dancing and alternating between multi-part harmonies and unison vocals.
    The instrumental backing team the Makgona Tsohle Band (1964–1999), led by electric lead guitarist Marks Mankwane and alto saxophonist West Nkosi.
    They were successfully popular in and around South Africa 1964–72, but found international success 1987–97, notably at the 70th-birthday tribute to Nelson Mandela at London's Wembley Arena in 1988, going on to feature in many international festivals.
    1964 formation
    The major record labels under South Africa's apartheid era were white-owned companies with very few black artists. Historically, laws such as the Land Act of 1913 to the Group Areas Act (1950) prevented musicians from different tribal communities integrating and many were not permitted to establish themselves in the city. Consequently, making it almost impossible for most black music artists to gain recognition beyond their own tribal boundaries. During the apartheid period, black South Africans could no longer play to white audiences and white broadcasting programmers did not approve of American-influenced music. Mavuthela was instituted in 1964 as a division of the country's largest independent record label Gallo Africa to focus solely on producing music for the black South African market. It was headed by talent scout/producer Rupert Bopape, a former producer for EMI South Africa before joining Gallo Record Company. Bopabe had already had successes recording popular artists such as Alexandra Black Mambazo, the King's Messengers Quartet and female group the Dark City Sisters. Black South African producers came up with the idea of returning to the styles of acoustic African popular music and harmony singing groups, but they electrified the instruments, mixed the sexes, and added a lively 8/8 township beat. Mbaqanga music became popular amongst urban black South Africans living in the townships.

    The group that later became known worldwide as Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens started as part of the team of musicians working at the Mavuthela Music Company. Rupert Bopape largely created the group from three distinct parts. He had brought with him from EMI Mahlathini (the 'Lion of Soweto'), a leading exponent of a style that was later christened groaning (a vocal style was performed by deep-voiced male singers in conjunction with five-piece female harmony groups and a backing band of instrumentalists). Another of Bopape's more successful acts was a team of female singers that would record songs under various group pseudonyms, including under the name, Mahotella Queens. The line-up of the group would consist of five singers taken from a larger pool of vocalists that included Hilda Tloubatla, Juliet Mazamisa, Ethel Mngomezulu and Francisca Mngomezulu, Mildred Mangxola, Nobesuthu Mbadu, Windy Sibeko, Mary Rabotapi (formerly of The Skylarks) and Nunu Maseko; they became the country's most popular girl group during the late 1960s – mid-1970s period. The Mahotella Queens and Mahlathini were backed by the newly formed Makgona Tsohle Band (which translates as the 'Band Who Knows Everything'), the five musicians were all former domestic workers from Pretoria – West Nkosi (saxophone), Marks Mankwane (lead guitar), Joseph Makwela (bass guitar), Vivian Ngubane (rhythm guitar) and Lucky Monama (drums). The horn section included Lemmy 'Special' Mabaso, Shadrack Piliso, Mario da Conceicao and (briefly) Spokes Mashiyane. The team of horn-blowers was expanded in the late 1960s to include Roger Xezu, Sipho Bhengu, Thomas Motshoane, David Khanyile (aka Fastos The Great) and Sello Mmutung (better known as Bra Sello).
    In 1983, in the UK Malcolm McLaren produced his influential album Duck Rock, a project that mixed unrelated genres together, including the uncredited music of Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens. Criticised over the years by some as exploitative, it was the first album that brought what is now known as world music to a bigger audience outside of South Africa and other countries. Western musicians slowly began to incorporate various world music styles into theirs.

    Hilda Semola Tloubatla (nacida en 1942) es una cantante de mbaqanga sudafricana y la cantante principal del aclamado grupo Mahotella Queens. Tloubatla nació en Payneville, Springs, Sudáfrica, antes de mudarse al municipio de kwaThema en 1951 como resultado de (lo que fue) la 'Ley de áreas grupales' del gobierno del apartheid en el país.

    Tloubatla comenzó su carrera musical grabando en la South African Broadcasting Corporation a fines de los años 50 y principios de los 60. Sin embargo, no fue hasta que se unió al equipo de músicos de sesión en Gallo Record Company en 1964 que Tloubatla ganó fama nacional. Fue reclutada de inmediato en un nuevo grupo femenino, Mahotella Queens, como cantante principal, junto con sus compañeros miembros del grupo Nobesuthu Mbadu, Mildred Mangxola, Juliet Mazamisa y Ethel Mngomezulu. Las cinco reinas se emparejaron con un equipo instrumental de mbaqanga, la Makgona Tsohle Band y las voces ásperas y gemidas de Simon Mahlathini Nkabinde, y no mucho después, la banda, anunciada como Mahlathini y Mahotella Queens, recibió fama instantánea.

    En 1971, varias Mahotella Queens originales (incluida Tloubatla) se habían ido para seguir otras direcciones en el negocio de la música, como unirse a otros grupos, por lo que se formó una formación completamente nueva de Queens. Tloubatla se convirtió en un miembro regular del grupo rival Izintombi Zesi Manje Manje, pero siguió regresando al nuevo grupo de Mahotella Queens de forma semi-regular.

  • THE MAHOTELLA QUEENS

    1:41

    The Mahotella Queens is a South African female group formed in 1964 by music producer Rupert Bopape. Originally a studio recording group consisting of around five or six singers, the current line-up of the Queens comprises Hilda Tloubatla, NobesuthuMbadu and Amanda Nkosi who joined the line-up in 2013 on the retirement of Mildred Mangxola. The group is noted for their distinct vocal harmony sound, guitar-led mbaqanga music and fast-paced stage dancing. Celebrating their golden jubilee in 2014, the group has had hit singles throughout their illustrious career. Their international breakthrough came in 1987, in the wake of the success of Paul Simon’s seminal Graceland album. Interest in “world” music exploded and the international community sat up and started taking serious notice of South African indigenous sounds. They have toured with many great names and in 2010 they appeared in Pee Wee Ellis’s show Still Black, Still Proud: An African Tribute to James Brown, and toured the UK with Hugh Masekela the same year. In 2013, the Queens proved that they have their finger firmly on the pulse of contemporary music, recording a modernised version of Gazette/Kazet, one of their best-known hits, with singer Zamo and kwaito star Brickz for the MTN8 football tournament.

    The Mahotella Queens es una banda femenina sudafricana formada en 1964 por el productor musical Rupert Bopape, compuesta por Hilda Tloubatla, Nobesuthu Mbadu y Amanda Nkosi. El grupo se destaca por su distintivo sonido de armonía vocal, música mbaqanga guiada por guitarra y baile rápido en el escenario.

    Bopape fue un buscador de talentos y productor en la filial independiente de Gallo Africa dedicada a la música negra, Mavuthela Music Company. Formó el Mahotella Queens como el grupo de chicas residentes de la compañía y el conjunto, a menudo dirigido por la voz masculina de Simon 'Mahlathini' Nkabinde, llegó a tener muchos éxitos durante la década de 1960. La alineación de Queens durante este período usualmente comprendía a Hilda Tloubatla, Juliet Mazamisa, Ethel Mngomezulu, Nobesuthu Mbadu y Mildred Mangxola. The Queens y Mahlathini fueron respaldados por la banda de la casa de Mavuthela, la Makgona Tsohle Band (incluyendo Marks Mankwane en la guitarra principal y West Nkosi en el saxofón alto). En 1972, la formación de las Mahotella Queens se desintegró después de desacuerdos de regalías con Bopape; Mahlathini dejó la compañía en una disputa similar con el productor. Sin embargo, con un cambio de membresía, las reinas siguieron siendo productivas y populares en los años setenta y ochenta. En 1987, después de la explosión de interés en la música sudafricana, la alineación de Queens se reagrupó y tres de sus cantantes originales, Hilda Tloubatla, Nobesuthu Mbadu y Mildred Mangxola, regresaron al grupo. En combinación con Mahlathini, el grupo forjó una exitosa carrera de giras internacionales que dura hasta nuestros días.

    A pesar de las muertes de Mahlathini, Marks Mankwane y West Nkosi a fines de la década de 1990, Mahotella Queens continúa actuando y grabando en el siglo XXI. En 2013, la miembro de larga data Mildred Mangxola se retiró del grupo. Fue reemplazada por una nueva recluta, Amanda Nkosi.

The Queens y Mahlathini fueron respaldados por la banda de la casa de Mavuthela, la Makgona Tsohle Band (incluyendo Marks Mankwane en la guitarra principal y West Nkosi en el saxofón alto). En 1972, la formación de las Mahotella Queens se desintegró después de desacuerdos de regalías con Bopape; Mahlathini dejó la compañía en una disputa similar con el productor. Sin embargo, con un cambio de membresía, las reinas siguieron siendo productivas y populares en los años setenta y ochenta. En 1987, después de la explosión de interés en la música sudafricana, la alineación de Queens fue reorganizada y tres de sus cantantes originales, Hilda Tloubatla, Nobesuthu Mbadu y Mildred Mangxola, regresaron al grupo. En combinación con Mahlathini, el grupo forjó una exitosa carrera de giras internacionales que dura hasta nuestros días.

    A pesar de las muertes de Mahlathini, Marks Mankwane y West Nkosi a fines de la década de 1990, Mahotella Queens continúa actuando y grabando en el siglo XXI. En 2013, la miembro de larga data Mildred Mangxola se retiró del grupo. Fue reemplazada por una nueva recluta, Amanda Nkosi.

    Presss Review:
    Still Black, Still Proud - An African Tribute to James Brown - Pee Wee Ellis, Mahotella Queens & Ty. Als musikalischer Leiter der James Brown Band und Mitautor von vielen Songs, wie „Cold Sweat, „Licking Stick oder „Say It Loud, Im Black and Im Proud bildete Pee Wee Ellis zusammen mit Maceo Parker und Fred Wesley die JB Horns. Mit dieser Bläserfront inszenierte James Brown ekstatische Bühnenshows und brachte die Funk-Revolution auf den Weg.

    In den Siebzigern nahm diese musikalische Entwicklung eine entscheidende Richtung, als sich eine ganze Generation afrikanischer Musiker durch den Groove des Godfather of Funk beeinflussen ließ. Und das ist heute noch so. Um dieses Vermächtnis zu feiern, hat der legendäre Pee Wee Ellis 2008 eine kontinentale African Soul & Funk Band mit wechselnden Gästen (Fred Wesley, Angelique Kidjo, Manu Dibango) gegründet: Still Black, Still Proud.

    Die Gäste beim diesjährigen Masala WeltmusikFestival sind die Mahotella Queens und ein wahrer Innovator, der HipHop-Black Music aus UK: Ty.

    Mahotella Queens: Seit über 45 Jahren mischen drei Damen munter an vorderster Front der südafrikanischen Szene mit, ohne dass sie im neuen Millenium an Esprit und Swing eingebüßt hätten. Hilda Tloubatla, Mildred Mangxola und Nobesuthu Mbadu haben den Mbaqanga aus der Taufe gehoben, jene unwiderstehliche Tanzmusik Südafrikas aus Jive, Soul, Gospel und Reggae. Die damals vorherrschende jazzige Marabi-Musik eines Hugh Masekela und der jungen Miriam Makeba war den drei Sängerinnen zu langsam. Und so koppelten sie die energiegeladenen Lieder der Xhosa und Zulu mit klickenden E-Gitarren und pumpendem E-Bass. Ein feuriger Mix, denn das Wort Mbaqanga steht auch für eine Speise aus scharfen Bohnen und Fleisch.
