Also, anyone interested in house music
Durban-style should check out the still
going strong gqom music scene there.

The album before Work for All, which was called Scatterlings,
was so incredibly overplayed in the States that there was a
palpable hatred for this band (and, later, Savuca) that I think
caused them to fall off the radar soon afterwards and
people I knew who had a scattering of interest in
mbaqanga were glad to see Clegg and Co. gone.
They gravitated more towards Hugh Masekela,
Lizzy Mercier Descloux, and the Mahotella Queens.

I was trying to think of who for a while, but I'm drawing a blank. It might be someone I never even knew was South African.

^ That's a nice clip, Gunmouth. Strange that the poor guy should die right after we'd been talking about him.

On a different note, haha, Amampondo is a band who mix a bit of jazz with a traditional sound. Their trademark is a steady marimba percussive groove. Whether you find it hypnotic or a little long-drawn out depends a lot on your mood I think. Anyway, this is one of their better tracks, imo:-



BTW, Amampondo means "people of Mpondo" so it's a word for a particular social group, as well as a guy's name and a song - so no one should feel bad if they get confused. I haven't checked, but if it's a city, a style of music and a brand of jeans too, I won't be surprised.

I'm looking forward to checking out the tracks in this thread when I finally get in front of a computer. I like quite a bit of South African music myself.

^ That'd be good, Janszoon - if you are true to form, I bet you'll be pointing us to some obscure artist in a sub-genre we've never heard of
