Discover and Listen to the Best South African Music Online
Now you can listen to the best musicians, the best tracks and the best albums in South Africa
South Africans really know how to make music. Trying to list the best South African musicians would take a very long time, so we won’t.
Instead, we’ll tell you that now you can listen to some of the very best South African music right here on CapeTownMagazine.com!
Many of our friends, from overseas and Cape Town, love it when we play South African music for them, because often they hear new and exciting artists and bands that they haven’t yet discovered and connected with.
Are you from Cape Town? Imagine you have heard that Tokyo is a hip and happening place. What music would you expect to find in Tokyo?
Tough question, huh? Karaoke was the best we could come up with. It’s similar for foreigners coming to Cape Town – they don’t necessarily know what to expect, but they may be eager to find out…
Imagine looking for music in Cape Town and discovering the likes of Freshly Ground, GoldFish, Shaun Duvet, aKing, Fokofpolisiekar, Hot Water, Hugh Masekhela, Mafikizolo, MacMcKenzie, Robbie Jansen, Abdullah Ibrahim, Plush, Ringo Madlingozi, Driemanskap, Valiant Swart, Judith Sephuma, Dino Moran and other South African bands and DJ’s… eish, you’d be blown away!
Discovering this South African music would certainly be a treat for your ears and your mind and would help you to instantly create a connection between Cape Town, South Africa and the world.
That is why we are so enthusiastic for our overseas friends to have the opportunity to discover and listen to the unique flavours of South African music, from contemporary Mzansi music to African Drummers, South African Gospel or Struggle music and Cds that make a perfect gift for kids.
We are fully aware that Cape Town is perhaps as unknown to some people as Tokyo is to others, and it’s our aim to give our incredibly large readership every opportunity to discover everything about Cape Town, including its music.
We want to showcase South African music, whether contemporary, traditional, neo-soul, jazz, lounge, hard house, Afrikaans, Kwela or music that has its roots in the (anti-)apartheid era.
Walk into a CD shop with thousands of South African CDs and you may wonder where to start browsing. We hope that our online listening feature will offer you an easy and enjoyable way of becoming familiar with some of the very best South African music.
Through our new music platform, anyone will be able to listen to, read about and find out where to buy some of the most delectable sounds available in South Africa as well as to download free MP3's of South African music that are given to you by the artists and record labels.
