The story of Vumbuka Records started on a dark dancefloor in Berlin, an early morning in 2017. Simon Lundsgaard aka Simone Ahà, a Danish DJ and vinyl collector, was dancing when suddenly an unknown South African kwaito-track blasted out of the speakers. Many months later he finally stumbled into the title of this obscure track: Student Night by Sandy B.
In December 2017 Simon had arranged to meet Sandy B’s in Durban, South Africa. Prior to his arrival he had spent five weeks in Johannesburg researching the South African music genre ‘kwaito’ as preparation for the collaboration with Sandy B. It turned out that the two of them had a very efficient workflow and in eight days they ended up with ten new Sandy B tracks.
