Notes

Born of the Zulu experience of labour migrancy, maskanda is a musical dance style dominated by lush acoustic guitar ‘picking’ and distinctive rhythms. Born in 1953 in Umzinto, on KwaZulu-Natal’s south coast, Shiyani Ngcobo has been a maskanda musician for more than thirty years. The winner of numerous maskanda awards, his use of a mixture of the rhythmic patterns associated with its different styles has earned him a reputation in South Africa as something of a maskanda maestro. This album captures how he has remained true to the aesthetic of early maskanda, while at the same time nurturing his own individual style.

He is a master of maskanda, a musical dance particularly popular among Zulu migrant laborers. The guitar picking on these tracks is fascinating and somewhat reminiscent of the guitar style associated with the chimurenga brand of Zimbabwe. The singing which includes rapidly spoken passages is, like the guitar, somewhat trance-like in its tone and circularity. The album's 14 tracks are minimalistic in arrangement, consisting mainly of guitar, voices and hand claps, with the occasional violin, whistle, drums or concertina. Album 2004 14 Songs.
