The Mahotella Queens – Wozani Mahipi
Thanks to our occasional guest titler @whyowhyvonne and the typically nourishing read there, Unmissable.
A post named not to celebrate my freedom from Facebook, no, but for a song in a playlist. Not because it’s the best song, but because it has the word “year” in it, and it’s January 1st, and that’s just how far we can push the envelope round here.
A day like this in a year like this deserves bonus music. So not just one track this Focussed, but a whole playlist. These are all 2010 releases, and another thing they have in common is our love for them.
