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.
