Caiphus Semenya
Streams Today… Rivers Tomorrow

Caiphus Semenya is a South African musician who fled apartheid in order to live in exile on the west coast of America. His second solo album Streams Today… Rivers Tomorrow carried on where his classic debut Listen to the Wind left off  - blending boogie, soul and jazz with more traditional sounds from his South African musical birth. Indeed Matswale was a massive hit in his homeland. Re-issue on Be With.

Caiphus Semenya
Listen To The Wind

Be With are really finding some lost gems of late. The latest is this 1982 album by Caiphus Semenya - a South African in self imposed exile in Southern California. He was already well known as a collaborator with the likes of Lou Rawls and Quincy Jones when he finally got round to making a solo LP. The album blends funk, soul, jazz and boogie with his South African roots for a modern soul album which blended '80s production with more traditional sounds and compositions.
