Goema [pronounce: "gooma"] music from the Bo Kaap, Cape Town, South Africa, as played today, still in its traditional format with voices, percussion, bass, banjo and guitar. The songs ("goema liedjies") have their origins in the early days of the cape; they are very much community music, full of social comment, humour and double entendre.
Upbeat, fast, festive music of South Africa sung in an African language. Drums, guitars, fun times, includes a bizarre sounding comical conversation between two of the singers about a minute into the track, also occurs later in the track. Male Vocals, African, South Africa
Music from South Africa, starts out slower paced and serious, drums and guitars prominent. Keeps a steady, midtempo beat throughout, completely instrumental, more serious sounding than other tracks from this artist. Instrumental, African, South Africa
Skiffle or surf sounds of the 50's and 60's come through in this uptempo South African dance number sung in an African language. For fun and dancing scenes and products where advertising needs to convey a sense of enjoyment such as vacation packages and cruises. Male Vocals, African, South Africa
Fun, dancing music of South Africa. Similar to the 50's and 60's surf group and skiffle sounds, silly talking between two singers continues for some time about half a minute in, then stops abruptly, track picks back up into music, stops again for another short talking exchange, finishes with music. Instrumental, African, South Africa
Song about the girl with the shortest skirt-starts out A Capella, instruments kick in after the first verse, sounds very much like Top 40 music of the 60's and 70's if it were sung in African languages. Male Vocals, African, South Africa
