HipKing: Best African Jazz Vol.2


About the show

Four Swaziland connections for me on this one: Abdullah Ibrahim's 'Blues for a Hip King' was written for King Sobhuza II, the jazz-buff hip-king; I fondly remember Sakhile opening a show at the Royal Swazi Sun Convention Theatre with a bass-driven version of Hugh Masekela's 'Stimela'; David Hewitt performed his 'Slow Train' in a show at the Swaziland Theatre Club; and Sankomota performed at the first King's Trust concert at Somhlolo Stadium (also, of course, Jiggs Thorne's annual Bushfire event at House on Fire is now internationally known).


Oh snap, there was a playback error!
