Encompassing the marabi, kwela and jive of mid-twentieth century urban South Africa, the Jazz- in- exile of the 1960s and 1970s, and the new wave of musicians in the twenty years of post-apartheid democracy, The Bungalow Road Jazz Show covers the sounds, styles, assemblages and musicians under the umbrella of ‘South African Jazz’, with new releases, vinyl re-issues, interviews and live music.
