Future Nostalgia: BLACK JOY IN ‘THEID

Sifiso Khanyile aka Soul Plaatjie

An eclectic mix of 80s South African “Township” Disco, mashed up with adverts, news bulletins, interviews and excerpts from TV shows of that period. This was the sound of things to come. We were dancing on the last embers of apartheid in an invocation for a new dawn. We were defeating apartheid and this was the theme music.
