Soweto Soul (ZA)

Afro-beat

Heerlen-born musician Joep Pelt left for South Africa to make a radio documentary about local music culture. What started as a small project culminated in Soweto Soul, a band that brings together a vibrant mix of South African musicians conducted by Pelt. Their mission is to pay tribute to the musical culture of the townships, from the swinging Hi-Life and Afrobeat of yesteryear to the hip-hop of today. Come on a musical trip through the history and future of South Africa.
