Musician, performer, writer Majola and author, poet, actress Lebo Mashile have released an E.P available on iTunes for download now! The E.P (https://itunes.apple.com/za/album/majola-lebo-mashile-single/id1115226668?app=itunes) opens with the song “Soweto”, an original composition between Majola/Zondo/Mashile.
The carefully crafted song with interesting rhythmic patterns captures the contradictions which exist in Soweto and how people negotiate daily life. “Thina Sizwe (esimnyama)” is arguably one of the most anthemic songs for black people’s struggle for total emancipation is given a new life in this project.
The last song is “Who knows where the time goes?” a “Sandy Denny” cover brought back to life to pay tribute to Dr Nina Simone.
