Soweto Serenade (premix) – free download

This is a song co-written by Barney Rachabane and myself. Barney is a great alto saxophone player that I worked with in South Africa. We had a band together in the 80s called ‘Conversations’ and this was a song from that collaboration. You can hear Barney on Paul Simon’s Graceland album and see him in videos of the Graceland tour. The song is a bit tongue-in-cheek in that it starts out as a serenade but gets out of hand and that’s a take on the township party vibe. This is premix of the track that will appear on my upcoming album ‘My African Heart’.
This track is long but I don’t have the heart to cut it down. It may have to be shortened for the album but I’ll deal with that later with my therapist.
