The Real Roots of Kwaito

I'm arguing that SA dance music no longer have much to do with Chicago at all, and people should stop thinking in terms of SA doing "their version of" House Music.

Whenever western publications have written about Kwaito and South African House, the story has almost always been told in terms of a unidirectional migration of House Music from the United States to Africa.

This is problematic because it always omits one central factor, one that's often missing even from the South African voices sometimes interviewed. That central factor is the wealth of Southern African musical traditions that was the real precedent, the main cultural lineage, the Mother (with Chicago perhaps being the Father, which might be an exaggeration) of Kwaito and SA House.

If the world is ending soon, lets not waste time on the way to the dance floor. This edition in the Ngoma Mix Series focuses on new 125 bpm African Electronic Dance Music, which may or may not have much to do with what is traditionally known as “House”. Selections come mainly from South Africa and Angola, with lots of percussion, many balafons, a touch of jazz, some diasporic elements from Cuba and Colombia, couple tunes made in Spain, and a shot of Nigerian Pop at the peak. This is the first part, relatively bright in feel: stay tuned for DRUM 2 – the dark side.
