“Anyone who’s into Ladysmith Black Mambazo and their Mbube a capella vocal style will find a new source of pleasure in Insingizi… a masterful performance… demonstrating the elegance and strength of Mbube” - Global Rhythm, USA
Released in 2004, the first “Voices of Southern Africa” album was such an amazing success, its North American release alone selling well in excess of 250,000 copies, that the group were encouraged to record a sequel.
Volume 2 presents 14 new tracks in Insingizi's beautiful mbube style, inspired by life in the townships and reflecting the day to day life in modern day Zimbabwe.
Insingizi’s music is filled with hope, optimism and faith. Wherever they go, the purity of their vocal interplay is overwhelmingly beautiful, the lyric is ultimately hopeful, and the inherent tone of their message is true to their spiritual beliefs.
