Episode 7

As we reflect on the sad fact of Madiba’s mortality and contemplate a world without his shining moral beacon, this special episode of Tune Me What? plays some of the great South African music he has inspired.

As the great man once said himself: “It is music and dancing that makes me at peace with the world and at peace with myself… but I don’t see much movement at the back there!”

So let’s join together to celebrate his remarkable life through the music that chronicled it from prisoner, to president, and a towering icon of our time.

In this episode, we feature the music of:

  • Sipho Hotstix Mabuse
  • The ANC Choir
  • Hugh Masekela
  • Abdullah Ibrahim
  • Bright Blue
  • Brenda Fassie
  • Lucky Dube
  • Vusi Mahlasela
  • Koos Kombuis
  • Savuka
