We take pride in our heritage and present to you:
EARLY NATIVE (HOMELANDS) MUSIC; SCATHAMIYA; KWELA; MARABI; MGQASHIYO; MASKANDI; SAKKIE SAKKIE; EARLY CHORAL MUSIC; SOUTH AFRICAN MUSICALS; FOLK TRADITIONAL MUSIC; SOUTH AFRICAN JAZZ; AND SOUTH AFRICAN MODERN EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC
Radio Bantu Native is a platform to encourage, and an open invitation to all those who are eager to share, learn and research about our cherished music that lies in the backdrop of the city of Johannesburg, where most recordings took place, blended with the township flavour of Soweto.
Radio Bantu Native takes its inspiration from Bantu Radio – a station established by the South African government in the 1960s as a pillar of its separate development programme but hijacked to become the musical voice of South Africa. Today we celebrate this critical era in African music.
“We pay homage to the past to celebrate the present. If you know your sound you’ll know your worth. Music defines us as South Africans, Africans and global citizens.” – Lerato Lichaba
