Soul Safari presents volume two of the Township Jive & Kwela Jazz compilation, featuring 18 rare gems from South Africa, recorded between 1930 and 1962. All titles on this compilation have been carefully handpicked from the ILAM Archives (the International Library of African Music), in Grahamstown, South Africa. The tracklisting represents a wide variety of styles from the golden era of jive & kwela, originally released on 78 shellac discs from small independent record companies. The compilation features rarities by the big names, obviously, but presents mostly obscure material from a long-lost past. Recorded from the original 78 rpms and professionally restored/mastered with artwork to match.
