Amampondo are a group that give the lie to the popular notion that to be traditional is to be backward. In the words of Dizu, their charismatic leader: " We want to go back as far as we can, to find out about the traditional songs, to find what is good in them, to bring the old, old songs into this time that we are living. That's why we involve some traditional musicians from Tsolo in this album, because we don't want to lose this rich African taste, this rich African culture that we have here in South Africa." Additional artists: The Harmony Singers, Mantombi Matotiana, Nokhawulezile Mdivase, Nomvuyo Ximbi.

Co-produced by Brice Wassy this album represented a departure into a more experimental
stage of Amampondo's career which was enriched by their collaborations in 1994 and 95
with some of the finest drummers and percussionists like Changuito (Cuba) Airto Moreira (Brazil) and Brice Wassy. The album scored the group's first SAMA award for the category
XHOSA. Brice on the choice of the album title recorded in West Sussex England on a small
farm holding with a very akward neighbour" We couldn't play drums that night because it
was getting after 5AM, we thought of the neighbours of Brownhill Farm who didn't like
music let alone the kind of musicians we are, so we all said ' drums for tomorrow' After
five the neighbour demanded to havea break from us but at the same time ignoring dozens
of planes taking off from Gatwick fling quite low overhead - signs of modern sickness
when machine noise comes before music!"

Vuyani is to celebrate Amampondo's 20 years of music making. It looks forward with some
exciting new tracks, whilst drawing from some of their great tunes from the past
performed in new ways. Featuring guests from the amazingly talented musicians that live
in the townships, often struggling to survive in a country that does not always
appreciate its own talent, this is a showcase for the music of Cape Town. To survive for
so long in the face of such pressure is quite an achievement, they deserve recognition
for their part in keeping Xhosa culture alive and growing. Today the pressures are
different and many members of the group are working with young people to teach them how
to play traditional instruments. The future in South Africa still looks good ! This is an
African album drawing influence from traditional Xhosa songs, music from the rest of
Africa and the music of African descendants all over the world. It is an acoustic album
with minimum electronics, but the sound is big, it's a celebration of life in the Rainbow
Nation, feel free to dance! Play it loud!
