The thirteen brand new tracks (first release of new material since 1977) on "Raise Your Spirit Higher - Wenyukela" reiterate the message that has transcended Black Mambazo's music since the group's earliest days. Survivors of the apartheid movement that divided South Africa for generations, the group widens their scope on this record and addresses many of the same kinds of struggles and cultural clashes that persist around the world. In English, the word Wenyukela means "raise your spirit higher," but the language of Shabalala's stirring and richly layered vocal compositions is universal. Raise Your Spirit Higher-Wenyukela is Black Mambazo's message of hope and unity to a troubled world.
