Wrapping up a weekend edition of Sound Travels right after what might be reasonably called the first real summer weekend here in the Mil with a bit of what I played for you all on the Sound Travels Mixtape. A vintage set of jazz, funk and a South African style called Mbaqanga. Mbaqanga is influenced by many things, particularly Jazz but at its heart, it is quintessential soul music from South Africa's Townships. Dope music...
