James Stewart
Pump up the volume, turn the lights down low and swing around the Christmas tree with your sweetie. South Africa’s very own Elton John in-the-making James Stewart may have been joking when he wrote this jam, but the piano riffs in this tune are festive enough to put even the most jaded Xmas Scrooge in a jovial mood.
Listen: Boogie Woogie Christmas

Jak de Priester
 Prolific Afrikaans musician's thoughts turn to what Xmas in the Mother City is all about on this homesick cabaret pop ditty off Brooklyn Poet.

Rob Hack
Beautifully rendered by an acoustic guitar and cello the Christmas carol, “O Come All Ye Faithful” is a soothing sure-fire way to kick start your Christmas Day festivities. This song was taken off the classic album Christmas Carols: Guitar and Cello.

Various Artists
Okay, so it isn’t as Africanized as the title suggests, but at least it’s a vibe-y mash-up of Xmas classics. You and your family will soon be jamming to the up-beat “Santa Clause is Coming To Town” and what would Christmas be without the good old sing-along “We wish you a Merry Christmas”?
Listen: An African Christmas Medley

Rupert Mellor
Santa’s got the blues because Christmas is around the corner and nothing’s going his way: interest rates are high and the shares are down, and as if that’s not enough the elves are on strike for a higher pay! Tune into this humorous ode to Father C. from the Mother City’s cult pop hero.
Listen: Santa's Got The Blues and Rock and Roll Christmas Blues
