The Sounds Of Soweto With Claude Deppa & Bukky Leo

Monday 21st May

We dedicate a night to exploring the musical life of Soweto, South Africa’s largest and most famous township in the company of Cape Town trumpeter Claude Deppa and Fela Kuti’s old bandmate Bukky Leo.

Spawning the mbaqanga genre, a guitar-based style popularised by Paul Simon’s Graceland, the Johannesburg township is responsible for one of Africa’s defining sounds.

Jazz too, represented defiance against the provincial existence imposed by the apartheid machine, remaining as a symbol of black urbanity and of the political influence of black Americans. The vibrant music and what it represented has survived to this day and can still be heard in clubs across the city and further afield.
