Their name suggests a strong bond, taken as it is from the first two letters of each of their names – and the trio that is Jamali is about to unleash a proudly South African R&B sound that will take them straight to the top of the charts! Emerging - like their male counterpart, Ghetto Lingo - out of the 2004 Coca-Cola Popstars talent search contest, Liesl Penniken, Mariechan Luiters, and Jacqui Carpede are about to dominate South Africa’s airwaves with their first radio single, “Greatest Love”. The track is the strongest calling card possible for the threesome, providing a beautiful-on-the-ear vehicle to showcase the girl’s gorgeous voices, and ability to wrap themselves around a song that is emotionally evocative and simply irresistible. It’s the lead single off Jamali’s as-yet-untitled album, which was recorded at CSR Studiois in Johannesburg, and promises to set the standard for South African R&B for years to come. Says Jacqui: “It’s been the most incredible experience! Obviously Popstars was hard work and not knowing whether you were going to make it, made it that much more difficult. But now we are a group, working together with our producers to create an album for people to love and listen to, it becomes all that more real for all of us and I think you can feel that spirit in the music.” Her sentiments are echoed by Mariechan and Liesl who are both buoyed by the experience of being in the recording studio. “It’s been fabulous,” says Liesl. “Exhausting too because we have had to record this album in a short space of time and do it with all the commitment and quality that you find in any other recording, but it’s been more than worth it.” From the onset of the recording process, all three members of Jamali made a commitment to ensuring a sense of “South Africaness” runs strongly through all the music. “We wanted this to be a global album that is also proudly South African,” says Mariechan. “For instance, when we worked with D-Rex we said to him that we wanted the music to be instantly recognizable as South African and his experience as a kwaito producer enabled us to really make that happen.” D-Rex created music that Mariechan, Liesl and Jacqui were able to write lyrics for – again revealing the depth of talent that lies in the trio. “I’ve been writing songs since 1993,” says Mariechan, “and so it came easily to me and with the help of Liesl and Jacqui we really were able to write about subjects that people can relate to.” Mixing up Zulu lyrics with English has turned several of the tracks of Jamali’s album into sure-fire radio hits – and the group’s ability to deliver lyrics and perform in a way that is startlingly good is likely to earn Jamali attention outside South Africa’s borders as well. Joining D-Rex in the producer’s seat is George Vardas, who has worked with TK, amongst many others and is known for his ability to produce chart-topping R&B songs. “Working with George was amazing,” says Liesl, “because he just got what we were trying to do so quickly and we were able to collaborate in a way that really benefited the music.” The line-up of producers is fleshed out by none other than solo star, Danny K and his longtime producer, Alexis Faku (also instrumental on all TK’s albums including the most recent South African Music Award-winning Black Butterfly). Says Jacqui: “I don’t think that we could have asked for better people to work with for this debut album. I’ve been performing in theatre and at corporate functions for a long time and know gifted people when I see them – and we have been fortunate in being in the studio with some of the best producers in the country right now.” Along with first single “Greatest Love”, look out for other standout tracks like “Give You Something” and “Butterflies” when Jamali’s debut release hits the shelves. It’s all about great music, beautiful voices, pin-up looks and performing abilities that already put this group at the top of its game.
