Sorcerer's magic

Franco's TP OK Jazz band whether with Josky or Simaro or Sam Mangwana, created some of the worlds most infectious grooves. The vocal ranges of Mangwana and Josky are AMAZING. Simaro's guitar playing and song writing make this recording unbelievable. Check out Zala sportif or Cooperation for can't miss tunes. Fariya and Tala ye na miso hit the spot as well. This could be the best TP OK Jazz recording in iTunes library... check out En Colere vol 2 for more amazing songs.
