The Sun

Profil:
Sometimes known as by its Arabic name As-Shams or الشمس, The Sun Records was a South African jazz label active since 1974.

Named by Abdullah Ibrahim (still recording under his "Dollar Brand" name at the time) and run by Rashid Vally from the "Kohinoor Record Store" in downtown Johannesburg, it was responsible for 1974's hugely-popular "Mannenberg ~ 'Is Where It's Happening'" album (distributed nationwide by Gallo Records due to high demand) and also re-issued albums by Joburg Records and its own predecessor, Soultown (2).

Along with sister labels Mandla, Roots, and Kalamazoo, it was active until around 1990 and now exists only as "As-Shams Music", part of the "Sun Music Group".
