This is South Africa, home to Legends and pioneering giants. For instance, there’s this band that pioneered the mbaqanga sound by experimenting with various styles until they perfected their innovation.
Their influence kick-started the transition from the marabi and kwela sound that SA pop was world-famous for; which led to township disco, and then kwaito, and then Mzanzi hiphop, and so forth.
They were also the first (and only ensemble for a long time) to have their own reality sitcom when it wasn’t even called such in the early 80’s. South Africa’s biggest and proudest moments, from Paul Simon’s Graceland to Mahotella Queens and some of Hollywood’s biggest soundtracks would not be possible without them. That band was called MakgonaTsohle Band.
