Moya - The Wind - Sung By Letta Mbulu

Moya means the wind in Xhosa. On this old vinyl recording, that we have found in East London Moya is sung by Letta Mbulu.

Originally this song was written and performed by Miriam Makeba. But we also love this version. Recorded in 1973 on Tamla Motown label. The cover is also great, Letta showing off her true African NATURAL beauty.

We have been collecting out of press records and record labels of the African Diaspora for many years. And we have found a great number of outstanding LP's in East London and the Eastern Cape. We did promise you more music and it will come. With time we will upload more tracks.  

With the sound cloud player you have to play the song one time to properly uplaod it (same story like on youtube). The second time it will run through smoothly. We have done an optimal cleaning but you might have to adjust bass and other settings on your side, depending on the sound quality you get.
