XHM #23 - "Plastic buzz like sixty thousand hornets" (2010 June 21)

7:34am - 9:03am

In honour of the World Cup, it's all South Africa. Lee Henderson stops by for a visit and plays some kwaito, whilst I have Soweto funk and cues from Tsotsi and District 9. Again, many thanks to Lee, Son of Hender, for stopping by for a long overdue profile on kwaito. I want to do a full show on that genre.

Here are the songs that I know were played.

A1. Bohannon: South African Man (Keep On Dancin', 1973) Dakar
A2. Joy Denalane: Soweto '76-'06 (Born & Raised, 2006) Nesola
A3. Letta Mbulu: Mahlalela (Club Africa 2, 1970) Strut
A4. Spirits Rejoice: Joy (Next Stop... Soweto, Volume 3: Giants, Ministers and Makers: Jazz in South Africa 1963-1984, 2010) Strut
A5. Soul Throbs: Little Girl (Next Stop... Soweto, Volume 2: Funk & Organ Grooves From The Townships 1969-1976, 2010) Strut
