Marumo
Modiehi (LP)

[ Mr Bongo / LP ]

Release Date: Friday 27 March 2020

'Modish' was originally released on Spades Record in 1982 and was recorded by producer West Nkosi, who was a member of supergroup 'Mahlathini & The Mahotella Queens'. He worked with the big hitters in South African music such as Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Teaspoon & The Waves, Patience Africa and many more.

Marumo were made up of a group of musicians from the Athlone School for the blind in Bellville, close to Cape Town. The band members - John Mothopeng, Munich Sibiya, Simon Falatsi and Marks Mbuthuma - came together to record this versatile album. It covers a wide number of genres from Sotho soul, Mbaqanga, disco-funk, gospel & spacey-synth slow jams.

Flash forward 30 or so years later and lost dead-stock copies of the album start to appear and Marumo's music begins to be heard across the world in the DJ sets of Motor City Drum Ensemble, Invisible City Editions, Floating Points, DJ Okapi and others.
