This week’s show is inspired by Die Lemme – which features former members of Die Gereformeerde Blues Band covering Johannes Kerkorrel’s song ‘Liefde’. They played on the original track back in 1989. Standing in for the late Johnny K is Arno Carstens from the Springbok Nude Girls. We particularly like it when South African artists cover other South African tracks because, we think, it helps to establish a cannon of homegrown music. So, we devoted the show to artists paying tribute to their fellow South Africans.
In this episode we featured:
- Die Lemme
- Jack Parow
- Jennifer Ferguson
- Ladysmith Black Mambazo
- Nico Carstens
- Sharon Katz & The Peace Train
- Soweto String Quartet
- Tony Cox
- Urban Creep
- Van Der Want / Letcher
- Vusi Mahlasela
