Thunder Before Dawn; The Indestructible Beat Of Soweto Volume Two ‎(CD, Comp).

Part of the series on Earthworks of current urban township-style songs from South Africa, Thunder Before Dawn is the second volume, overall a very nice collection of works, predominantly in Zulu, from Soweto. Quite possibly the main highlight of the album is the music from Mahlathini Nezintombi Zomgqashiyo, a South African supergroup comprised of Mahlathini, the quintessential groaner, the Mahotella Queens, and Marks Mankwane's Makgona Tsohle Band. The other nice surprise is the accordion work of Johnson Mkhalali

Released by Earthworks Jan 1988 13 Tracks. PLAY ALL. Thunder Before Dawn: The Indestructible Beat Of Soweto, Vo. Released by Earthworks Jan 1988 13 Tracks.

Remember ‘The Indestructible Beat of Soweto vol. 1’ ? This is the second volume and it’s called ‘Thunder before Dawn’. Another dose of Zulu Jive, played by several groups and just the thing for today. Burn it on cd and play it everywhere tomorrow, the day the worldcup of football starts the big tournament in South Africa. Just within a stone’s throw from Soweto the South African national team plays Mexico to open the games. I hope it will become a huge international football fiesta, just happy news and beautiful matches, let’s all go for that ! Happy Games ! tracks
