^ 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:-

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!!

Abstract Truth, a South African jazz/folk/prog/rock group. 2009 reissue of their 1971 album "Totum" with bonus tracks from their 1970 debut album "Silver Trees."

^ 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

Hello my Dears, long time no see.

Music of SA is a really interesting and complex issue since we've got so many sources of the music from many places, not always related with Africa by itself. Many artists have been noted here already, so for now two other which were not mentioned yet.

Nico Carstens - accordionist and vocalist (sometimes), known not only for his albums and live concerts, but also his performances in South African movies. Here's one of his greatest hits: "Zambezi":



Ladysmith Black Mambazo - male choir from KwaZulu-Natal region, which started to play back in 1960 until now. Related with isicathamiya music. Check below how it sounds like:

Wow! Sir_Cactoos! I didn't expect to see you here again. Welcome Back

I've never heard of Nico Carstens, but Ladysmith Black Mazambo are much better known of course. They shot to international fame because of their contribution to Paul Simon's Graceland album. Not entirely sure why, but after mentioning LBM people always refer to the Mahotella Queens as well. So there we go: I've followed the rule too.

Thomas Chauke is apparently a popular guitarist in SA, bringing that particular light, bright African electric guitar sound to some traditional songs. Here's one that's pretty nice:-
