Om Alec Khaoli – Say You Love Me

Om Alec Khaoli

Brian Shimkovitz’s Awesome Tapes From Africa label has been unearthing undiscovered gems from “Rainbow Land” for over ten years.

Since dropping Nâ Hawa Doumbia’s enchanting acoustic folk LP La Grande Cantatrice Malienne, Vol. 3, back in 2011 the high quality of releases has not diminished.

Up next on the label is an eclectic selection of epic pop creations from Om Alec Khaoli.

“Say You Love Me wasn’t “Om” Alec Khaoli’s first solo recording but the 1985 EP solidified the bass player and songwriter’s standing as one of South Africa’s most consistently innovative pop auteurs.” Brian Shimkovitz

An absolute must listen!            


Say You Love Me EP is out 30th June via Awesome Tapes From Africa – buy from Bandcamp.
