Foster Manganyi

Foster Manganyi has been played on NTS in shows including The Do!! You!!! Breakfast Show w/ Charlie Bones, featured first on 15 January 2015. Songs played include Tintsumi - The Angels, Ndzi To Tiyisela and Zion.

Sublimely convulsive Shangaan electro-gospel by a pastor from Giyani, Limpopo, recorded in 2008, brimming with aching, plaintive, mournful spirituality. However fractured, multi-faceted and fresh the music comes across — that signature whistle and sampled marimba, a little wonky high-life, rough, skittering drum patterns, no bass — the surging vocal lines and harmonies are unmistakably rooted in traditional South African music.
