The Dark City Sisters were a group of session singers who came together to record an album and in the process popularized an innovative new style of singing. Rather than singing a common four-part harmony, the Sisters used five parts, which created a richer tone. Sometimes known as "vocal jive," this technique was subsumed under the umbrella term "mbaqanga," meaning, literally, dumpling, and figuratively, a homegrown style. ~ Leon Jackson
