Produced by Taj Mahal Vusi Mahlasela is simply known as ‘The Voice’ in his home country, South Africa, celebrated for his distinct, powerful voice and his poetic, optimistic lyrics. His new album Say Africa is full of songs of freedom, of revolution, of love and of life. Raised in the Mamelodi Township, where he still resides, Vusi became a singer-songwriter and poet-activist at an early age teaching himself how to play guitar and later joining the Congress of South African Writers. After his popular debut on BMG Africa, When You Come Back, Vusi was asked to perform at Mandela’s inauguration in 1994 and continues to spread Mandela’s message as an official ambassador to Mandela’s HIV/AIDS initiative, 46664. Say Africa is a follow up to his very successful 2007 release Guiding Star. Say Africa, produced by Taj Mahal and recorded at Dave Matthews Band’s studio in Charlottesville, captures Vusi’s hope for the future of Africa: ‘Let all those who share in Mandela’s greatest wish—to one day see an Africa that is at peace with herself—SAY AFRICA.’ Angelique Kidjo also features on Nakupenda Africa.
