The song ‘Emlanjeni’ or ‘I will meet you by the river’ as I prefer to call it has been my ringtone for the last 2 months now. This is after I took an interest in the group which I knew of thanks to Classic Fm overplaying their song Ndihambanawe. They almost made me hate the group.
However, I watched the video to the song Emlanjeni and lets just say, I feel in love with the group then, needless to say, I never listened to the overplayed track.
Well, the group from South Africa will be gracing this month’s Blankets and Wine at the Leisure Gardens, Mamba Village on Sunday 4th September from 1 till 6.30pm.
Mafikizolo a rocking melange of traditional sounds, thumping bass of African house rhythms and a dose of 50s popular music genre marabi.One of South Africa’s most favourite music groups, Mafikizolo, is back with a brand new banging album after a well deserved two year break and this time they want to take their loyal fans on the musical journey of their lives. The transport for the journey is a Six Mabone – a classic car of the 60s-which is the title of their seventh album.
Despite loosing their lead singer, Tebza in December 2001 following a road accident, the group has gone on to become one of South Africa’s most sought after group.
