We Are Busy Bodies is excited to announce a limited edition Canadian reissue of saxophonist Winston 'Mankunku' Ngozi's 1968 masterpiece Yakhal'inkomo. Remastered by Noah Mintz at Lacquer Channel from the original 1/4 master tapes, Yakhal'Inkomo is a truly essential jazz recording of the South African apartheid era.

Mankunku's masterwork is one of those rare recordings whose audience saw at once that it embodied the spirit of the age. The title, 'Yakhal'inkomo', refers to the bellow made by a bull just before it is sacrificed, and the mourning cries of its fellow cattle as they see it struck down. 

The album has been licensed from Gallo Records and is limited to 300 copies. Due to the nature of the license, digital files are not available for purchase from We Are Busy Bodies. The album has been remastered for vinyl by Noah Mintz at Lacquer Channel.
