In other news, South African DJ Da Capo has collaborated with Gallo Remixed to produce an African original remix of ’Imbizo’ by legendary Maskandi artist Phuzekhemisi.

The song is a blend of African indigenous music, combined with tribal ancestral vocal elements and drums.

It is a combination of house and maskandi – “Zulu Blues” – a sub-genre of Zulu folk that touches the soul.

Phuzekhemisi x Da Capo “Imbizo” is now out on global streaming platforms.
