Vusi Mahlasela's New Album, Shebeen Queen

We are pleased to share with you that our good friend and longtime collaborator @Vusimahlasela has a new live record out, Shebeen Queen.  He recorded it in front of his late Grandmother Ida’s house in tribute to her and to the music of his childhood.  As Dave says, “there is relentless courage in Vusi’s music.  He has used his voice to fight for a just and fair world against the backdrop of Apartheid and injustice far beyond the borders of South Africa.  His voice is pure light.  I love him like a brother and a hero.”  Check out this joyous album.
