To mark Matsuli's impending release on Monday 28 November of Batsumi's incredible 1974 debut LP we have two copies of the limited edition vinyl up for grabs (if you don't have a turntable Matsuli will arrange a digital copy for download or via CD).

Full details on the reissue are available at the Matsuli site here and Dan Magaziner has given it a big thumbs up at Africa is a Country. Honest Jons describes it as "Landmark Afro Jazz from South Africa, 1974 — urgent, spiritual, political; shimmering, propulsive, surging. Reverbed traditional and trap drums, mesmeric bass, soaring flute and tenor sax. Warmly recommended."
To purchase copies of the limited edition vinyl please visit the Matsuli link or if you are based in South Africa copies are available here. Digital downloads as MP3s are available from 28/11 via iTunes, Amazon and eMusic. It is also available via streaming service Spotify.
