The Orations – Sound Of Orations (South Africa, 1977, Love Love)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Sound Of Orations“, an uplifting breezing psychedelic Afro Soul Surf Mod Funk guitar instrumental track recorded in 1977 by the obscure South African band “The Orations” that only seemed to have recorded 2 singles (one in 1975 and this one in 1977), and that included the musicians Marks Mbuthuma & Simon Falatsi from the band Marumo, and was produced by the very prolific mythical South African producer & saxophone player David Thekwane – Enjoy !
