Kwani Experience
Dropping the price of petrol, and maybe cutting repo and interest rates before 2010 is cool and all, but c'mon politicians how about creating some jobs? Kwani Experience keeps it real by mapping Mzansi's hip inner city pulse with their bewitching 21st century brew of jazz, soul, funk and kwaito-hop.
