Synopsis

Filmed while apartheid still held sway in South Africa, this video documented the joy and anger expressed by black South Africans in their music. Filled with interviews and performances by such artists as Johnny Clegg, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and the Mahotella Queens, this video documents a scene where music wasn't just a leisure activity, but a necessary instrument of resistance. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi

Review

Review Text This is a broad survey of South African styles collected by filmmaker Jeremy Marre on a documentary shoot -- good variety but not on a par with many collections released since then. ~ Myles Boisen
