Soundway Records is releasing a new double vinyl collection called Esa Presents Amanda: Music To The People, this July.

Listen next: VF Mix 152: Hugh Masekela by Esa

Compiled by South African DJ and producer Esa Williams, its title is inspired by the phrase “Amanda, Awethu”, which translates to “the power is ours” – a political rallying cry during the Apartheid-era.

“Music was a crucial way of bringing people and communities together”, shares Esa, “and it’s what I hope to achieve with this compilation, too.”

Spanning from South African kwaito house to Brazilian zouk and Tanzanian fusion, its 10-tracks include songs by Penny Penny, Mim Suleiman, Alaska and Esa himself.
