After almost 5 years I pulled out my Sankomota CD which I have stowed away and when I played it I was re-introduced to the soothing sounds of a music group which I believe, together with Stimela, are ahead of many if not all musicians this side on the southern Africa. Sankomota music was composed by music geniuses in the mould of Frank Mooki Leepa and Tshepo Tshola. Franks’s lead guitar proffers the balance and melodic arrangement that the group’s music is renowned for and it is just simply top drawer.
Ray Phiri (affectionately known as Bra Ray) together with his band of astute musicians, his lead guitar also titillates my listening taste and makes me beg for more. Who can forget Jimmy Dludlu with his George Benson-esque strumming of the musical piece, just makes me sit and take seriously the talent that our musicians have and many of whom the instruments they play were self-taught.
