Everyone has stuck to reggae music on this thread, amazingly enough. For me, I wanted to hear some South African music while I thought about Nelson Mandela
. There is a soundtrack CD to a film made about his life called simply MANDELA
. It has a wide range of music from Kalahari Surfers and Brenda Fassie to older jazz stuff. The highlights for me are Black President by Brenda Fassie and the cuts from The Manhattan Brothers, The Skylarks, The African Jazz Pioneers, The Havana Swingsters and The Father Huddleston Band. Glorious!http://www.amazon.com/Mandela-Africa-Fa ... B000001EAAhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8U3_zzT2kM
This is a feature about Nelson Mandela
's love of music I found just searching for the CD details. Interesting reading, but the list of songs about Mandela
puts The Specials tune down twice!http://www.sabc.co.za/mandela/featurede ... cff/group4
! Amandla! Awethu!
