Kwaito Is the new sound of the new South Africa, a uniquely South African mix of local sounds with urban beats from House to Hip Hop. Featuring Arthur, Brenda Fassie, M'du, Bongo Maffin, and others.

"Kwaito is South Africa's new popů. closer to house than hip-hop. It's great stuff, and if it was playing in a bar; you'd ask what you were listening to; if overheard in a record shop, you'd probably buy it."
The Independent

"The lyrics are conscious, the pumping house beats infectious and the vibe strictly street South Africa. A blast from start to finish."
