Letta Mbulu is a South African jazz singer who has been active since the 1960s. While still a teenager, she toured with the musical King Kong, but left for the United States in 1964 due to Apartheid. Mbulu also provided the Swahili chant in Michael Jackson's single "Liberian Girl". Producer Quincy Jones about her: "Mbulu is the roots lady, projecting a sophistication and warmth which stirs hope for attaining pure love, beauty, and unity in the world." On In The Music The Village Never Ends, her voice soars over a strident musical force that veers between disco, soul and pop music. The gleaming guitars recall disco's finest hours while the thump of the beats anticipate 80s British soul. The album was originally released in South Africa in 1983, is produced by Mbulu's husband Caiphus Semenya and has become one of those must-have African records over the years. It features her biggest hit "Nomalizo". In The Music The Village Never Ends is available as a 40th anniversary edition of 2000 individually numbered copies on yellow and translucent green marbled vinyl and includes an insert. 180 gram audiophile vinyl Includes insert Featuring her biggest hit "Nomalizo" 40th anniversary edition of 2000 individually numbered copies on yellow and translucent green marbled vinyl

Frequently Asked Questions

We are a European label and for the majority of our releases, we only have the European rights, meaning that they’re produced for the European market only. Because of this, these releases are not available for purchase at our MOV shop.

Are you located outside of Europe? This is most likely the reason why the product is not available to you. We are sorry for any disappointment that may have caused!

If the record is essential for your collection (which we would understand), we'd advise to search for European shops or marketplaces.

A pre-order product is a product which still needs to be produced. So, after your purchase, you won’t receive this product immediately. We strive to send these on the Release Date which you can find on the product page under the collapsible tab called “Details”.

Keep in consideration that manufacturing processes can always turn out to be delayed so this Release Date, acts as a guideline.

When the ordered item is in stock, we always aim to dispatch your order as soon as possible.

The pre-order articles have an (expected) release date listed on the product page. We usually ship out these pre-order articles several days before the release date, to ensure that you will receive the record on - or as close as possible to - the release date.

If you place an order with both pre-order items and items the MOV Shop has in stock, your entire order will be shipped on the latest pre-order date of any of the pre-ordered items. If you do not wish to wait, please place separate orders.
