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.
