A rare and emotionally bruised live version of this bottom of the bottles boere blues classic from South Africa's legendary folk troubadour.

A dynamic jazz and maskandi-filtered fusion gem off the Gauteng Afrobeat combo’s debut smash: there’s a hint of North African soul folk in here too.
Listen: Bayakhuluma

Peter Mitchell
The first single off Valiant Swart band member's new debut solo album, Hamlet By Night. It's well-crafted, sensitive singer songwriter stuff.
Listen: Top Secret

Wild Horse
Ag nee, a cash-in on the "De La Rey" craze? Nope. Just Frans and Cathy Maritz giving sokkie langarm fans a reason to do the 'Achy Breaky'.
Listen: Die Boere Generaal

Fly Paper Jet
Cape Town's Simon and Garfunkel continue to tread the folk path less travelled on this indie-pop nugget off Let's Go Back To The Carnival.
Listen: Creepy

Plus! This week's MP3 vintage vault bonus
Breyten Breytenbach
The struggle continues. "A rebel song never dies," says Mzansi’s premier Afrikaans poet in this gentle flute, drum, Zulu vernac vocal and bird song filtered tone poem.
Listen: Rebel Song

This week: a rare bottom-of-the-bottle blues classic courtesy of Koos Kombuis, some awesome Afrobeat, an 'Achy-Breaky' sokkie smash, sensitive singer songwriter stuff, & more.
