Sweet Sax Sweet Flute Sweet Spokes Mashiyane
World Cup distractions - mixed fortunes for Africa's sides ... but we wont bore you with the details here. It is however time to share some more early classic jive from Spokes Mashiyane ... and now that Cameroon were burgled by Japan (sorry, I digress) ... when i first saw this cover I wondered as to the significance of the Japanese umbrella for Spokes in the early 60s ... today, well, Japan cast a big shadow in Africa. Well played Japan ... but I digress.
Great early 60s music from Spokes here. Thanks Siemon for the share! Enjoy ... and now for Italy ... P.S. if you did not get to listen to the Shyannes below ... do yourself a favour and pull that one your way too! Go Bafana, go Ghana!
