A field recording of Mvimbeni by Amathongo, featuring virtuoso and South African national treasure Madosini on the Uhade bow and vocals.
Mvimbeni was performed on a sunny afternoon in August 2017 in Zeekoevlei, Cape Town. With the smell of brewing coffee the group readied themselves for the stirring performance.
Amathongo can be broadly described as an African jazz music ensemble, consisting of Hilton Schilder on keyboard, Lungiswa Plaatjies on vocals and percussion, Pedro Espi-Sanchis on vocals and percussion and Jonny Blundell on acoustic guitar and vocals. Mvimbeni is taken from their album Modokali.
