Putumayo has a new compilation CD of music from South Africa; we took things a step farther today, spinning everything from Safrojazz to kwaito to Zulu choirs and beyond, to give you an idea of the South Africa beyond the soccer stadiums and TV soundbites. Congrats to Andrew of Olympia who won our giveaway of the Amabutho CD.
Congrats to our listeners who are Netherlands & Uruguay fans; sorry to the Brazil & Ghana supporters, and to the rest of the African continent supporting Ghana. If only….
