Brenda Fassie( Visual )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The music in this program is a detonating blend of soul, disco, and Mbaqanga-a blend of pop and traditional rhythms-from music legend Brenda Fassie, niece of Nelson Mandela. Fassie talks about her childhood days as a singer with the Tiny Tots-a street-corner group with whom she often did imitations of American folk singer Roberta Flack. Later music, which she describes as "bubble-gum," made her a star. But it was her song written and dedicated to Mandela entitled "Black President" that thrust her onto the international music scene. Banned in South Africa, the song became an international anthem for the anti-apartheid movement
Mango Groove( Visual )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sound of the group Mango Groove and its multiracial members is the sound of the new South Africa. Punchy, vibrant, bursting with life and color, it is an infectious jive, a melodious fusion of the traditional three-chord structure of marabi rhythms, pop, and jazz - all built around the piercing sound of the pennywhistle. Mango Groove's founder, John Leyden, traces the group's fascinating history from its roots in Sophia Town, the legendary freehold settlement that gave birth to the first fusion of the American big band sound and traditional African rhythms

The performance highlights Mabuse with his original pop group, the Beaters, and with his newly formed cross-cultural group that mixes American funk with the percussive polyrhythms of Africa

Marcalex( Visual )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The music of Marc and Alex Rantseli, aptly described as slick funk, has gained international popularity in America and abroad. A cosmopolitan crossover sound, it is the flip side of South Africa's township beat of Kwela and Mbaqanga. While the brothers admit to only the slightest incursion of ethnic influences into their music, the performances in this program belie that. A strong international influence in the music is attributed to the brothers' urban Johannesburg roots
Mahlathini( Visual )

Widely acknowledged as the father of Mbaqanga-the stew of musical influences at the heart of the Soweto beat-Mahlathini currently tops the charts. In an interview, Mahlathini's guitarist, Marks Mhangwane, traces the influence of Mahlathini's music from the streets of Soweto, where the group was harassed by white South African police, into Swaziland, Lesotho, Botswana, Malawi, and Mozambique
Ntemi Piliso : African Jazz Pioneer( Visual )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this program, African jazz musician Edmund "Ntemi" Piliso traces the roots of African jazz from the days of apartheid in 1940s Alexandra Township. With musical performances throughout highlighting the various eras, Piliso moves through the days of pennywhistle jive groups hustling change on streetcorners, to the sounds of marabi-a bittersweet fusion of American jazz and the restless rhythm of an uprooted tribal culture. The latter sound, lost for a time amid the African pop music craze of the 1960s through the 1980s, is now being revived by Piliso and his musical group, the African Jazz Pioneers. In this program, we listen as they kick off that revival campaign in small township halls and jazz clubs

Today's sound is called African Hip Hop, and the group playing it, the Prophets of the City, is the subject of this program. Their leader, Deon Daniels, discusses the music's inspiration: hard-core American street rap. The lyrics, rooted close to home, reflect anti-drug, anti-violence, anti-gang, and political messages

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

African jazz man Mike Makhalemele carefully blends western and African musical elements to give his music its unique flavor.

In this program, Makhalemele discusses his music, its African and contemporary origins, and its role as a bridge between the white and black worlds of South Africa.

Little Sister( Visual )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The music performed in this program, from Little Sister, comes from the white capital of South Africa, Pretoria. It represents the crosscurrents of the country's pop wave, heavily reliant on American-style rock and roll. The performers, two sisters calling themselves Little Sister, describe their rise to fame as a sort of "divine accident." One sister, Debbi, describes her transition from classical guitar to electric bass guitar, and tells what it's like to be one of the few female bass guitarists in the male-dominated South African rock music arena
