Sawubona futhi abangane!

Our four-hour excursion into THE MUSIC OF SOUTH AFRICA from 1968-1994 continues as Don Play moves on to the funkier stuff. Yes, there is plenty of Harari to go around!!!

Lucky for you, Don has done the heavy lifting here. Listen and observe how outside influences interact and infiltrate the bubble of institutionalized apartheid, and how South African music evolves into a more unified format that galvanizes separate “homelands” and brings together a nation. This is the soundtrack to a country on the rise. Change is inevitable.
