Hi Victor,

Let me know if I can help you with the music, all that I have listed
is currently on my computer anyhow.

Enjoy your "Braai", down lots of "Castle" while you're "braaing", grab
some "Biltong" to chew while you're at it, and "Marmite" goes very
favourably with your "Simba" snacks.

Have a blerry lekker evening, Boet!

Humba Kahle,

That Guy In Africa...

Hi Victor,

Err... I profess to not really listen to the rhythmic beat of African
but go more for the western culture. Most of the African music is
vernacular, and means ab-so-loot-ley nothing to me, 'cos I have no
idea what
they are singing about.

However, Johnny Clegg and Savuka / Juluka has some good stuff. One of
favourites is "Scatterlings Of Africa", but there are others such as
which is usually sung during an International Rugby match featuring
'Boks, also "Third World Child" and "The Great Heart", which was the
for the movie "Jock of the Bushveld". Also, "December African Rain".

Ladysmith Black Mombazo Hits include: (These are a'capella)
        Shosholoza (brought us luck in the '95 Rugby World Cup when they
        Rain, Rain, Beautiful rain
        Swing Low Sweet Chariot (Not from SA, but their rendition of it is

I don't know of the Mahotella Queens, so can't help you there.

Instrumental music includes the following:
        Hugh Masakela - Grazing In The Grass
        Miriam Makeba - Pata Pata (Vocal)
        Nico Carstens - Zambezi
        Nico Carstens - Warmpatat
        African Jazz Pioneers - Skokiaan (African version)
        Dan Moyane - Shosholoza (A'Capella)
        Ipi Tombi - Mama Tembu's Wedding (From the Show)
        Mango Groove - Special Star (Kwela)
        Miriam Makeba - The Click Song
        Norman Luboff Choir - Mangwane Mpulele (American Choir, Zulu "Peace"
        Rasta Rebels - Gimme Hope Joanna (protest song)
        South African Traditional - Drum Rhythms
        Spokes Mashiyane - Kwela Claude (Traditional African Music)
        Spokes Mashiyane - Kwela Spokes ( = ditto = )

I never saw the movie "The Power of One", so can't help there. But the
list should get you going.

Happy days,
