Jabula (isiZulu: "rejoice") was a musical ensemble made of South African musicians "exiled" in England during the Apartheid Era.

Under Apartheid, traditional African music was largely banned from radio and even private play, and groups who performed it were often forced into exile. The four members that became Jabula met in London where they were living after leaving South Africa. The group was formed in 1974.

In addition to their own albums, the group also performed with [a=Mike Oldfield] for his albums Amarok, Incantations, and Ommadawn.
