riddims tropicale 6 282x300 Riddims Tropicale #6

June edition of our podcast show Riddims Tropicale, presented by TropicalBass.com. Host: Marflix

This month we focus on urban music from South Africa, namely Kwaito and Kwaito House, the “township music”. Kwaito is a perfect example for a genre which is influenced by House, RnB, Rap and Garage but has it’s very own characteristics which let is stand out – the music is always associated with a local cultural context that brings out some extra meanings and messages even if the rhythm patterns might sound familiar to western ears.

All artists in the show are from South Africa (to my knowledge) except Lady May (from Namibia) who released two albums on my label Faluma Africa, and “Vuvuzela Funk“, a Kwaito House / Funky – Hybrid with myself on the beats.

Live stream every first Sunday on RKRadio.
