Penny Penny – Shaka Bundu
Media: M (2xLP)
Penny Penny hails from 1994 South Africa. Shaka Bundu contains simple yet deep synth-pop anthems that couldn’t give a fuck if you thought they sounded corny at first. It’s that kind of tape. And this music, a more pop-leaning side of Tsonga (or Shangaan) Disco, feels as if Fast Eddie hijacked the regional neo-traditional sounds. WBMX by way of Transvaal.
The world we live in now is an awesome one. Penny Penny, who was fortunate enough to be born into a family of 68 children and 17 wives.
