Amaswazi Emvolo were the sound of Soweto under apartheid - pulsating township jive with a heavy bouncing bassline and ringing guitars.
Formed in the early 1970s they came to Western attention on the compilation LP "The Indestructible Beat Of Soweto" with the song Thul'ulalele. Along with Abafana Busequdeni and Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens they represent the golden age of South African pop.
Amaswazi Emvelo were perhaps the last “greats” to come out of the famous
Mavuthela mbaqanga stable. Led by Meshack Mkwananzi, this SiSwati vocal
group features on all the great 80s international compilation albums –
including on all three volumes of “The Indestructible Beat of Soweto”.

PLEASE READ THE SMALL PRINT BEFORE YOU BUY:
Paypal is smoothly integrated into ebay, and works well.
Paying by credit-card - whether or not you have Paypal, you can still use credit-cards through PayPal.
Just DON’T LOG INTO AN ACCOUNT, and look for the button saying ‘Pay by credit-card’.
We also accept cheques from UK banks in Pounds Sterling, and UK Postal Orders. Checks in US Dollars from US banks can be accepted with a $3 surcharge.
PayPal ‘eCheque’ payments take a week longer to arrive, so expect a delay if you use that facility. You can avoid eCheques by having a credit-card linked to your PayPal account.
Orders paid by any method outside the PayPal system may also be subject to delays.
UK and particularly international postage charges continue to rise. The amount we charge is what we expect to pay plus approx 20-30p for packing materials.
Multiple items postage
If you are ordering multiple items, there will be automatic approximated reduction in postage costs – BUT make sure you order them together, not individually. Depending on the weight of the items, the estimate may still be excessive. If you want an accurate calculation then first put ALL the items into your basket, then don't pay but click on the 'Request total from seller' button in the shopping basket. We'll then recalculate the costs for your combined items postage and send you an invoice. The postage may or may not calculate as less.
Delivery time excludes weekends and Bank Holidays, which may be different in the UK from elsewhere.
Packets to overseas destinations (particularly Italy, Russia, South America) often take longer than advertised due to local customs delays.
Overseas post is by Royal Mail Air Mail Small Packet, for which there is NO tracking number. Currently we don't regularly offer a 'signed for' or tracked service; but message us if your order is over £50 value and you'd like to add such a service.
Please note, the date printed on our postage is a day or two after we print it, ie it’s the date it remains valid until with Royal Mail, not the date of posting.
Packaging: For vinyl we generally use sturdy card cruciforms, not envelopes, and if not shrinkwrapped we remove discs from sleeves, to avoid sleeve splits. For CDs we use corrugated cardboard, not jiffy bags.
We want you to be really happy with your purchase. If you’re not, or something’s gone wrong, please message us. We will do our very best to resolve any problem. If our item description isn’t quite right, or you think we’ve overcharged on postage, please LET US KNOW instead of 'opening a case' or marking down our ebay feedback. If you have an order problem you’d like to resolve quickly, you can phone us on +44(0)208 537 3445. Good manners are appreciated!
The ebay messaging system doesn’t include your name, date of purchase or payment, or even the order reference #number! It’ll help us deal with your query faster if you can include any of those. Please remember, the ebay shop is not our main business so we may not always respond immediately; but we will get back to you.
