S05E20 – Africa Is Not A Genre

In this episode Leon and Brett talk about one of their pet peeves – that all South African music is lumped together as “world music” when in fact South African artists span a great many genres, including pop, rock, reggae, hip-hop, jazz, folk, country, fusion, punk… you name it. So here’s to South Africa’s amazing musical diversity!

In this episode, we feature:

  • Prime Circle
  • Tailor
  • Toya Delazy
  • Buddy Masango
  • Wild Youth
  • Blk Jks
  • Tumi & The Volume
  • Jimmy Dduldlu
  • Lucky Dube
  • Marcus Wyatt
  • Bev McGreggor
