1906 is the first album by South African music project Bambata. The name of the album refers to the Zulu rebellion against the English in the Colony of Natal (modern Kwazulu-Natal) in 1906, led by Chief Bambatha kaMancinza (ca. 1860–1906?). The Zulu rebelled against a poll tax introduced by the English.[1]

The album was a result of collaboration between Sipho Sithole, director and founder of the Native Rhythms Productions, Philangezwi Bongani Nkwanyana, Mathufela Zuma and Bheki Khoza.

1906 was nominated for three categories in the South African Music Awards 2001:[2]

  • Best Newcomer
  • Best Zulu Music and
  • Best Adult Contemporary Album: African.

Sipho Sithole was also nominated for Best Producer.[2]
