Spoek Mathambo is a post-Apartheid glam-rap prince from Soweto. Breaking the notion and stereotype expectations of African musicians, his tunes don’t sound South African – no longer looking back on cultural ties, while fusing beats and sounds from synth mixers & samplers to kwaito beats…chill

Die Antwoord…the hottest rave/rap band in the world…straight from Africa…Cape Town to be exact. Here they are performing ‘I Fink U Freaky’ on Letterman. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, their videos are the most over the top, offensively brilliant productions ever. Look some of them up on youtube!

PASTE is a South African street art exhibition curated by Shani Judes of SJ ARTISTS.

18 local artists were selected to design, illustrate or photograph work around the theme of Khayelitsha Culture. The work was turned into large scale wheat pastes and was pasted around Khayelitsha and the inner city of Cape Town.

The aim: to take the exhibition out of the gallery space and into the streets of both city and township. Spreading the art into the different cultures and allowing the greater community access.

“Stars Above You” is the new music video for South African electric hop band Locnville. Beyond this being quite beautiful and epic looking, the contrast of an electronic pop song and a strong 18th century style gives the song a great visual narrative and allows it to carry its “importance” without distraction and the result is quite lovely.

Luke Younge works for Lucid Pictures a production company in Cape Town that makes powerful, thoughtful films for people who make a difference. This film takes a look at sustainable energy in South African cities through the eyes of a schoolgirl doing an after-hours rehearsal of her school oral presentation entitled “My City”

Faith47 is a painter and street artist known best for the giant murals that adorn the city of Cape Town. She’s the subject of a new documentary, The Creators. The documentary takes you on a creative journey through the making of Faith 47′s Freedom Charter series, her outdoor murals inspired by the statement of core principles of the African National Congress.

    (Wikipedia): The Freedom Charter is notable for its demand for and commitment to a non-racial South Africa, and this has remained the platform of the ANC. Members of the ANC with opposing Africanist views left the group after it adopted the charter, forming the Pan Africanist Congress. The charter also calls for democracy and human rights, land reform, labor rights, and nationalization. After the congress was denounced as treason, the South African government banned the ANC and arrested 156 activists, including Mandela who was imprisoned in 1962. However, the charter continued to circulate in the revolutionary underground and inspired a new generation of young militants in the 1980s. On February 11, 1990, Mandela was finally freed and the ANC came to power soon afterwards in May 1994. The new Constitution of South Africa included in its text many of the demands called for in the Freedom Charter.
