 History Of Township Music History Of Township Music


Fortunately, a good deal of South African music was preserved during the apartheid-torn times, this album is a well documented history, with detailed sleeve notes, of township music in South Africa

This album is described as follows by the "Rough Guide To World Music": A One Stop Compendium of the history of urban township music as it developed in South Africa. Every major genre is illustrated with original long unavailable recordings of the most famous artists (as well as a few who have dropped off into undeserved obscurity). Treat it as a mini-encyclopaedia and read the notes, or just sit back, listen and enjoy. Twenty eight tracks and every one a classic. Songlines describes it as "the bible of township music".
