Azania Band and Friends – Ghetto Sound Vol3

From Cape Town, the Azania Band has already become an integral part of the International Reggae scene. The band’s new album “Ghetto Sound Vol. III” features Jamaica’s foundation artists namely Freddie McGregor, Luciano, Half Pint,  Jimmy Riley, Iqulah, rendering a balance of roots reggae and original dancehall. Also featured on the album are the top international Reggae artists, Anthony B, Tarrus Riley, Junior Kelly, Yami Bolo, Everton Blender, Dean Fraser and more.

The music on the album is fresh, deeply immersed in positivism, yet guaranteed to groove and uplift the listener. The album also features South African veteran Reggae singer Colbert Mukwevho who is from Venda, Teba from Cape Town and Ras Melody from Port Elizabeth.  

With so much experience as a backing band for international artists like Yasus Afari, Cedric Meyton of the Congos, Teddy Dan, Iqulah, Turbulence, King Kong and Judy Boucher, an Azania Band studio collaboration with these high calibre Reggae artists was inevitable.  

Ras Vuyo, the producer and owner of One Afreeka Edutainment says that “ to my knowledge there is no South African band that has done a full reggae album featuring  Jamaican artists, not to mention that the album is produced locally by a South African producer. I think that the people of South Africa should know that Reggae music in South Africa is very much alive.”
