Sampler: South African Funk Experience

Information

2010 collection. With the World Cup in South Africa set to dominate the cultural agenda this summer, we thought it would be timely for a compilation of the funkiest vintage grooves from 1960s-1980s South Africa. Styles range from traditional Zulu, Shangaan and Sotho funky sounds through to Jo'burg's '70s and '80s JB wannabees, and on into deep Jazz-Funk and spiritual Dance-Jazz work-outs; all funky, forgotten S.A. dancefloor gems derived from John's own vinyl collection, the majority of which have never before appeared on CD.

The funkiest vintage grooves from 1960s-1980s South Africa!

Funky forgotten South African dancefloor gems most of which have never been issued on CD before! Styles range from traditional Zulu, Shangaan and Sotho funky sounds through to Jo'burg's 70s and 80s JB wannabees, and on into deep jazzfunk and spiritual dance-jazz work-outs!

In the myriad Afro Funk, Afro Beat and Afro Jazz reissues and compilations of the last few years, the name of South Africa has been unaccountably absent: South Africa has always had the largest music industry in the whole of Africa by a long, long way and "South African Funk Experience" features the artists who rocked the blacks-only shebeens, brothels and bars of Soweto, and the notorious migrant camps' Saturday night dances.
