Cool. I'm only just really delving into South Africa's music right now. Loving the journey

I also found an instrumental by the Soweto Stokvel Septette from 1966, called Eddie's Ska. Nice little number.

^ Someone who fits this description might be Manfred Mann; born in Johannesburg, but moved to England in his 20s because he didn't like aparthied. Angel Station is a pretty cool album by his Earth Band:-

I think I might like this one better than the previous. This one's called Soweto Ska:

Default HELP! What is the name of this love song that was popular in South Africa in 2014?

I'm sorry I don't know how to use forums, I am just desperate to find the name of this song!
It was a popular song that teenagers and kids would aux from their phones and it played on the radio in our taxi often. It is a love song, kinda retro/blues-y, but not in english (maybe afrikaans?). And the music video is a boy and a girl kind of just playing around, very cute. The locals told me it was basically just a love song!
If you have any idea of what this song might be, please help me!!

^ This is a wonderful recommendation! A solid album with lots of long instrumental passages and some cover songs that have been very well-selected. A pleasant surprise for me was a version of Oxford Town; Freewheelin' Bob Dylan is so packed with classics that this short song is often overlooked, and Totum's version is strong enough in itself that you don't start hearing the original in your head as you listen to the cover.

Thanks, Psy-Fi
