Image: 1604537 Insurgently crossing Philly Soul, Cape Jazz and bump jive in 1976, the same year as the Soweto Uprising, poignantly shot through with Timmy Thomas' Why Can't We Live Together.

"It was so important for us to play a kind of crossover then, to weave in touches of Motown, Philadelphia soul and Teddy Pendergrass that the coloured community appreciated, and Basil's Cape Town sound, and Sipho's sound that was legendary in the black community, and make music that people could all enjoy together... The regime divided us: people classified coloured had identity documents, black people had the dompas. We didn't accept that separation. Sipho, although he was born in KZN, could play any feel. Sometime he'd joke, Does my bass line feel coloured enough?" Another landmark Matsuli. The title track is killer.
