The Indestructible Beat of South Africa — Monday Night World Music

It was my good for­tune and great plea­sure to see the leg­endary Hugh Masekela in con­cert this past week­end. In hon­or of this mag­nif­i­cent musi­cian and per­former, tonight’s Mon­day Night World Music fea­tures the music that influ­enced him and that he influ­enced in his turn — the inde­struc­tible beat of South African music.

From town­ship swing jazz to town­ship jive, from choral sounds to Sowe­to hip-hop, rock-pop, jazz-pop, and straight jazz — we’ll cov­er the wide range of the sounds of South Africa. Apartheid-era leg­ends like Miri­am Make­ba, the Mahotel­la Queens, and Lady­smith Black Mam­bazo; polit­i­cal pop pio­neers like Julu­ka; mod­ern super­stars like Fresh­ly Ground and Zola; and of course, Hugh Masekela — and more. It’s going to be a great show.

Come hang out with Carter and enjoy the inde­struc­tible sounds tonight from 6–8:30PM SLT. You can join Carter in world at Mad­hu’s Café Indi­en, or lis­ten in on Radio Riel’s main stream. Hope to see you there!
