We gave it an A+

As the audience for modern African music grows in the U.S., the releases just keep coming. Does the world need yet another South African mbaqanga compilation? You bet, if it’s as soul-enhancing as The Kings and Queens of Township Jive: Modern Roots of the Indestructible Beat of Soweto. Graceland fans who still haven’t heard the real thing, start here. A+
