The South African musicians who had flown to Britain following Chris McGregor's Brotherhood created an influential fusion of township music and free jazz (and
a bit of jazz-rock).
Dudu Pukwana, who had written the Brotherhood's signature tune, Mra,
recorded In The Townships (november 1973) in a quartet with trumpeter Mongezi Feza and drummer Louis Moholo, and
Diamond Express (november 1973), with Feza, Moholo, saxophonist Elton Dean, pianist Keith Tippett and trombonist Nick Evans,
albums of jams that relied on the infectious African melodies and rhythms
while adopting open-ended structures.
