Letta Mbulu is a South African jazz singer who has been active since the 1960s. While still a teenager, she toured with the musical King Kong, but left for the United States in 1964 due to Apartheid. Mbulu also provided the Swahili chant in Michael Jackson's single Liberian Girl. Producer Quincy Jones about her: "Mbulu is the roots lady, projecting a sophistication and warmth which stirs hope for attaining pure love, beauty, and unity in the world."

On In The Music The Village Never Ends, her voice soars over a strident musical force that veers between disco, soul and pop music. The gleaming guitars recall disco's finest hours while the thump of the beats anticipate 80s British soul. The album was originally released in South Africa in 1983, is produced by Mbulu's husband Caiphus Semenya and has become one of those must-have African records over the years. It features her biggest hit Nomalizo.

In The Music The Village Never Ends is available as a 40th anniversary edition of 2000 individually numbered copies on yellow and translucent green marbled vinyl and includes an insert.
