Shuffling drum beats, serene horn lines, and sweet vocal melodies all come together in the vintage sounds of township jive and South African jazz. Featured on the superb African Jazz n’ Jive compilation, these styles originally evolved out of a complex web of local and global influences. From traditional Kwela flute music and improvisatory Marabi, to bass-heavy Mbaqanga and very influential American jazz recordings, both township jive and South African jazz were born.
