Mango Groove – Special Star.
The penny whistle is this hit is unmistakably South African. I saw them live only once opening for the Rolling Stones.
Johnny Clegg – Spirit of the Great Heart
Is there any other star as uniquely “ours” as Johnny Clegg? He’s one of the most down-to-earth musicians I’ve ever interviewed.
Abdullah Ibrahim – Manenberg
Formerly known as Dollar Brand, Abdullah Ibrahim is one of the elder Statesmen of SA Jazz and this is one of his most le hits.
Miriam Makeba – Pata Pata
May she Rest in Peace. The wonderful Miriam Makeba will always be a real shining star.
Sipho Hotstix Mabuse – Burnout
I love the energy of this song, Burnout. It reminds me of the turning point in our democracy.
