Jabula Biography (Wikipedia)

Jabula (isiZulu: "rejoice") was a musical ensemble of South African musicians "exiled" in England during the Apartheid era, led by Julian Bahula.

The four musicians who became Jabula met in London, where they were living after leaving South Africa. The group was formed in 1974 and consisted of:

In addition to their own albums, the group also performed with Mike Oldfield for his albums Ommadawn (1975), Incantations (1978), and Amarok (1990).

On 21 July 1979, they appeared at the Amandla Festival along with Bob Marley, Dick Gregory, Patti LaBelle and Eddie Palmieri, among others.

Their second album, Thunder into Our Hearts (1976), is dedicated to the trumpeter Mongezi Feza (1945–1975), with whom the group played in the run-up to its recording, but who had died.
