Stranger on a Train


Leon meets a random South African on a train journey from San Diego to LA… and it turns out to be the former bass player of Arapaho. And so we begin the journey there and steam through another hour of great South African music.

In this episode we feature the music of:

  • Arapaho
  • Bakithi Kumalo
  • Chris Chameleon
  • Evoid
  • Hannes Coetzee
  • In Simple English
  • Kongos
  • Mbongeni Ngema
  • Slo Foot King Brothers
  • Steve Kekana
  • Thabong Melodeers

And introducing the fabulous multi-talented Xav.

As promised, that video by the extraordinary Hannes Coetzee and his teaspoon technique.
