Pett Maluleke is a multi-talented artist, singer, record company owner, and producer. His latest release 'Tshwane' is a great recording in a long line of great South-African releases. Afro Pop, Jazz, Spirituals, hey even Reggae feature the album, sung in Tswana, Sepedi, Zulu, Tsonga, and English.
Lyric-wise the album covers a broad range from love songs, family events, social criticism, to political activism.
For instance, the title track reflects the campaign for the name of the South-African capital to be changed from Pretoria to Tshwane in honor of Chief Tshwane, the indigenous ruler of this place.
'Mudle Maliiyake' is a song that raises awareness of alcohol abuse, i.e. breaking of marriages, abuse of spouses, loss of life, etcetera.
All tracks are expertly instrumented and arranged, with a special note to the featured lead singers and backup vocalists that fill in and make this release a very enjoyable and rich experience.
'Tshwane' features 11 original tracks, 1 remix, and is released by Minoti Records on all major platforms.
