Batsumi 1974 debut back in print


The most popular release on the Matsuli Music catalogue has just had a repressing on red translucent vinyl. Just 500 copies so do put your order in if you don't want to be disappointed!

Here's what people had to say at the time of the original release in 2011:
"Great South African jazz record from 1974...sharing common ground with the much-loved spiritual jazz of Strata East, Black Jazz, Don Cherry schools of the 70s." (VINYL FACTORY)

"Remastered from the original tapes...it's a vibrant, energetic workout in which slinky, repeated riffs are matched against wailing, sometimes psychedelic effects, with saxophone and flute solos added." (THE GUARDIAN)

"This album has remained a hidden gem for nearly 40 years, enjoy it." (SOUL BROTHER RECORDS)

Matsuli is also offering a special double vinyl package of both Batsumi albums for a discounted price of $35 exc. postage (a savings of $15). All details and how to purchase at the MATSULI SHOPFRONT
