Uplifting Sounds for Times of Sorrow
One of my all-time favorite albums! From the joyfully wild romp of Shine through the jauntily triumphant cheekiness of Know Me, the sheer enjoyment of being alive -- even under inhumanly repressive conditions -- in the township-oriented Appear and all-senses-full-on of Wedding Hymn, to the bittersweet, utterly devastating yet tenaciously hopeful Sorrow, it is the perfect combination of pure music (no lyrics) with withering (anti-apartheid) political critique. Art and politics have rarely come together as seamlessly, freely, and searingly as this. Sadly, too many of Moholo's musical and political comrades never got to return to South Africa, but we can still listen to this masterpiece in their memory while working towards the kind of better future that they all dedicated their lives to. Amandla Ngawethu!
