"Bonke Abantu Bayamenywa" means everybody is welcome
Anyone who has experienced the live force of Amampondo is almost certain to have been disappointed with their recorded output. Nothing quite matches the spectacular energy and passion of the band playing live. Except perhaps for the Sibuyele 915 12" single that was released in 1984. Just a few months before recording this single I was involved in hosting Amampondo live in concert at the University of Pietermaritzburg's Old Main Hall. The lo-fi recordings made of that performance are still remarkable. And I'm very pleased to be presenting the full concert performance with all its glitches for electricjive followers today.
The download folder includes all 18 tracks from the concert as well as the 12 inch single (with slightly dubious "dub" version)
