Andy Compton's Sowetan Onesteps is a project born during a tour of Andy Compton in South Africa where he met Shamrock (on guitars), Bongani (percussion and keys) and Mpho (vocals) who all hooked up for a jam in Soweto at Shamrock's studio - the rest is history... Subsequently, we were celebrating the three single releases "Chillin' in the ghetto", "I belong" and "A fathers love", now the release of the full length album is just around the corner. To cut right to the chase, this masterly crafted and orchestrated album featuring vocalists Mpho, Asali and Shamrock from Africa alongside Bristol's Celestine and Ladybird from Paris is sheer musical bliss, taking you on an inspiring journey that truly captures the spirit of Africa. In other words, "Sowetan Onesteps" is a masterpiece...
