Moses McHunu – Qhwahilahle (1985)

In the mid 1980s, Earthworks Records released a series of fantastic LPs documenting “The Indestructible Beat of Soweto” from South Africa. All of the LPs/CDs are fantastic but this track was always my favourite. The song was released in 1985 but the sleevenotes suggest the track was recorded sometime between 1981 and 1984.

A wonderful circular guitar pattern, killer violin and soaring vocals.

Afraid I don’t know what all the lyrics mean but the title translates as “Leave Him Alone” and the CD booklet describes the content thus:

Just imagine you are the only one of your age group who is not

Married and your peers are jealous of your girlfriends ……
