Audio: Mr. Jambatani's Tsonga Disco

Hanyani Maluleke aka Mr. Jambatani is a producer/singer playing Tsonga disco — a genre that resembles slowed-down Shangaan electro which dedicated blog 27 Leggies describes as "a modernised version of the traditional music of the Tsonga people, who live mainly in the north eastern part of South Africa and southern Mozambique." Jambatani's infectious click constructions are massive, and arguably more accesible in comparison the lightning pace of Shangaan electro.
