A musical trip through southern Africa to the tunes of the post-apartheid generation. Kwaito music originated in the 1950s in the dusty streets of South Africa's townships, such as Sophiatown, Pimville, and subsequently in Soweto. It is inseparable from the Pantsuela culture of the rebellious youth gangs during the apartheid regime. Since there was no money for musical instruments or extravagant costumes, they concentrated on their dancing and singing skills and on turning the streets into their stage. Currently, almost fifty years later, Kwaito culture is experiencing a renaissance in a manner that was completely inconceivable in those days.
