This 10 track offering is set to be Kabelo Mabalane’s most culturally rich offering yet. With features by the likes of Black Motion, Rhythmic Elements and Danny K, Immortal Vol 3 will transcend the South African borders with the album’s tribal African beats.
“For the longest time, I’ve been influenced by the West through hip hop, which is evident through the music I did with TKZee … I forgot the rich sonic heritage in Africa, and Immortal Vol 3 takes inspiration from that. There’s a lot of tribal African rhythms and songs of celebration of Africa.” shares Kabelo Mabalane.
Kabelo Mabalane’s new single, Free This Land, is inspired by Jay William’s 80’s hit, Sweat. The song is a “war cry” that aims to make South Africans realise that the potential of the country can only be achieved if we all put our heads together. The newly sampled single has already been picked up by the likes of YFM locally, and Yarona FM in Botswana.
Immortal Vol 3 is currently available for pre-order here.
