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 Music, South African Music
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 Music, South African Music
