Territories: WW -FRANCE -UK -JP -USA Official reissue Tracklist : 1 Iyahlasela 2 Weapon Song 3 Take Time To Love 4 Searching 5 Colours Of The Rainbow 6 What Kind Of Love Is This? Short Info: Rare South-African boogie / funk reissue from one of the finest male voice, surrounded by some of the nations top musical talent (Bayete, Satari, Hotline ..) Remastered 6 song mini LP originally produced in the mid-80s *very in-demand with funk record collectors and DJs worldwide. Featuring 6 upbeat synth-driven, boogie funk dance tracks *first officially licensed vinyl reissue* Colours of the Rainbow contains the best 6 tracks from two rare South African LPs by recording artist Bibi the Kid Msomi: 4 tracks from the 1985 album Searching, and 2 tracks from the 1986 LP What Kind of Love is This? South African funk music from the 80s has recently gained recognition as some of the best funk productions in the world; yet so many titles remain virtually unknown outside of South Africa, especially due to the scarcity of the original pressings (due in part to the destruction of any music perceived as subversive by South African government censors at the time). The level of musicianship on these recordings is simply world-class. Even Paul Simon was trying to work with Bibi Msomi while recording his Graceland album in South Africa (read more about it in this exclusive interview). Combining American and South African funk influences, these 6 upbeat dance tracks feature popular synths and drum machines of the day. The subversive lyrics and infectious grooves on these recordings address the political turmoil during the peak Apartheid years in a way that was just subtle enough to slip under the radar of stringent government music censors. Deep messages of freedom and universal brotherhood are backed by some of South Africa’s greatest musical talent, including: Mac Mathunjwa (Street Kids, Neville Nash), Sello Mphatsoane (Bayete), The Hot Soul Si
