More, More, Moriri

Let's liven up your Tuesday evening with a couple of slices of vintage mbaqanga courtesy of Mr John Moriri. At some point between 1976 and 1983 he traded in the Manzini Girls for the Katanga Boys. No disrespect to the lads, but he should have hung on to the girls, if only for their ululating.

"Bayabaleka Bantu" - John Moriri & The Manzini Girls (1976)

"Batho Bamono" - John Moriri & The Katanga Boys (1983)

Here is another cool dude from the 1970s who popped up on my shuffle earlier today and is proving strangely reluctant to leave. This is for anyone out there whose Love Jones is out of control. Most of you, I imagine.
