Disco hits from 80’s South Africa band Kumasi get a reissue by Smiling C

Listent to “I Know You Feel It” below.

Kumasi was a band from South Africa in the early 80’s. A pseudonym for the members of Stimela & The Cannibals, they recorded these songs anonymously to avoid legal trouble with the major label they had signed with. There’s a special something in these songs that was hardly rivaled in South African disco recordings – The uninhibited vocals, the unwavering rhythm section, even a touch of humor.

 

Kumasi’s I Know You Feel It will be out on 28th January via record label Smiling C.
