Graceland by Paul Simon( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Graceland, Paul Simon hit on the idea of combining his always perceptive songwriting with the little-heard mbaqangamusic of South Africa, creating a fascinating hybrid that re-enchanted his old audience and earned him a new one. It is true that the South African angle (including its controversial aspect during the apartheid days) was a powerful marketing tool and that the catchy music succeeded in presenting listeners with that magical combination: something they'd never heard before that nevertheless sounded familiar
