Witchdoctor’s Son Album Release party


  • Eclectic
  • Global

Matt Temple - from the South African jazz vinyl reissue label Matsuli Music - returns to Spiritland to launch Witchdoctor’s Son. This forgotten gem of the South African jazz diaspora features Johnny Dyani and Okay Temiz fusing deep roots and new routes from a 1976 Istanbul studio session. Available now for the first time since Yonca Records originally released only 1000 copies in Turkey, this album has remained an elusive and sought after landmark in South African exile Johnny Dyani’s discography.

In addition to a full debut of the album and heavy doses of deep spiritual jazz from the African diaspora, Matt will showcase a number of his favourite African recordings from 45 and LPs.
