BORN TO KWAITO
Esinako Ndabeni and Sihle Mthembu (Jacana Media, R246)
Born to Kwaito revisits history as told through the vibrant lens of this genre, which is so much more than just music. Kwaito presented a new, unbridled form of expression for black South African youths and carried the political significance of black South Africans who decided to take a moment to enjoy the promise of freedom. Born to Kwaito will have you asking ‘Waar was jy?’ as it takes you through the
‘tsiki tsiki yho’ of our South African narrative, cementing a culture of living, dancing and human relation unique to Kwaito and to eKasi.
