Listen to “Sankomota: An Ode in One Album”

LIVE at Chimurenga Factory, Cape Town

Perhaps outside of Fela’s Egypt 80, very few music bands have managed to influence their countries in the manner and to the extent that Sankomota did. Their emergence, explosive musical repertoire and long-lasting musical effect could neither be predicted nor expected. The effect of their music on the conscience of mortals and politicians alike, can still be felt even today.”

On 31 May, we hosted the launch of Phehello Mofokeng‘s reflective essay on Lesotho’s greatest band, Sankomota. “An Ode in One Album” is available from The Chimurenga Bookstore (157 Victoria Rd, Woodstock, Cape Town) for R170.00

Listen to recording of the conversation with author and Sabelo Mcinziba, live from Chimurenga Factory, Cape Town.
