AllMusic Review by

A compilation from Polydor of somewhat larger names in the South African music scene. Miriam Makeba makes a couple of appearances, as do the Mahotella Queens. As a special treat, Lucky Dube, the top in African-based reggae, also makes an appearance. The music is quite lively and could potentially get anyone moving. If you're a fan of African music, of singers like Miriam Makeba, of Afro-reggae, of mbube, etc., you should pick it up for a listen. If not, there might not be much that you would like.
