To breathe into another voice : a South African anthology of jazz poetry( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Writing about jazz is like dancing about architecture, ' observed TheloniousMonk. It's possibly one of the few times he was wrong. Jazz poetry is almostas old as jazz itself. Poets such as Thulani Davis, Langston Hughes and ourown Keorapetse Kgositsile and Mongane Wally Serote have long heard thepatterns of the music and its makers and transformed and re-enacted thosepatterns in compelling words. Given South Africa's venerable jazz tradition, it's perhaps surprising it's taken so long for more fundis to be tapped fortheir responses to our kind of jazz. But it takes a special brew of ingredientsfor this kind of book to come together. You need an inspired guiding spirit, such as editor and jazzwoman-in-words Myesha Jenkins, and you need avat in which the ingredients can mix and bubble. That's been provided byall those who've opened stages for the music to happen, and most recentlyby the Orbit under the direction of Aymeric Peguillan where Jazz & PoetryNights brought words and music together, each a kind of yeast that helpedthe other to ferment and rise. You'll find everything here in To breatheinto another voice: faithful and fantastical accounts of the jazz life and jazzpeople as well as reflections on the music as a metaphor for how we live -- or, maybe more importantly, how we'd like to live. All you need to do nowis open the covers, start reading, and dance joyously about the architecture. GWEN ANSEL

Sharp Sharp! : the kwaito story( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

South Africa has produced more than its share of distinctive and influential musical genres. The 1990s style known as kwaito was that nation's first major post-Apartheid musical movement, and while it drew from American hip-hop and American and European electronic dance music, this was a powerfully South African sound and cultural force. Several stars of kwaito speak of its origins, originators and the conflict between its joyful syncretism and its township immediacy
The uprising of Hangberg : eyewitness accounts detailing human rights violations during the uprising of Hangberg by Aryan Kaganof( Visual )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Uprising of Hangberg is an activist documentary filmed by Dylan Valley and Aryan Kaganof in response to the events of a particular day. The original music score is by Stellenbosch University music student, Natasje van der Westhuizen. The documentary provides raw footage and eyewitness accounts of the attempts by the Western Cape Provincial Administration and the City of Cape Town to evict residents from their homes in Hangberg, Hout Bay in the Western Cape, edited to both highlight the brutality of the riots but also the failed promises of local politicians, a microcosm of the failed promises of the larger South Africa. On 21 September 2010, Cape Town Metro Police officers entered the township to forcibly remove several township residents and destroy their homes which were built above the determined firebreak. The Rastafarian community in Hangberg is central to the narrative developed in the film, which also documents Rastafarian Nyabingi, a resident of Hangberg chanting and drumming the traditional music of the Rastafarian religion. The Uprising of Hangberg works not only on the artistic level, but also as a political intervention enabling a marginalized community to speak of their oppression and trauma
