Uhadi and South African Jazz videos

I had the opportunity to work with some wonderful artists from Johannesburg, in a group we formed called Uhadi.

While they were in town, we prepared some videos outlining South African Jazz styles. Two of them - a video on mbaqanga and a video on ghoema - are up here. Check them out:

Two more lessons--one on marabi and one on Jazz in the anti-apartheid struggle--will be posted soon, as will a longer form oral history with Sibongile Khumalo.
