Dick Khoza: Chapita (Tower Records Exclusive)

Dick Khoza: Chapita (Tower Records Exclusive)
Showing Dick Khoza proudly shrouded in a tribal blanket on the album’s cover, Chapita is a South African jazz masterpiece laced with funk and seeped in Afrobeat.

A working musician and sought-after drummer, Khoza earned his chops in Port Elizabeth and Cape Town before migrating to Johannesburg, where he was employed at the legendary Pelican Club in
Soweto.

As the nightclub’s stage manager, he was responsible for overseeing cabaret shows and jam sessions and played a key role in cultivating the era's soul, funk and jazz scene.

In wake of a trip to Malawi, the country of his birth, where he saw the Afrocentric British rock band Osibisa perform live, Khoza assembled his Pelican Club compatriots for the September 1976 session that yielded this landmark nugget of South African vinyl history.

Restored from the original master tapes, Tooth Factory presents a 2021 edition of this rare classic as the label's inaugural release.
