Kwaito Memories

Patience Pearl

Kwaito emerged in the late 80s to represent the dance sound of freedom in post-apartheid South Africa, laying the foundations for today’s Gqom and Amapiano.

Patience Pearl presents two mixes:

  • The ‘Kwaito Tavern Memory Mix’, a 1h30min music mix of unearthed kwaito gems.
  • And its accompanying ‘Kwaito Memories’ mix, a 1h show collecting the experiences and memories of four South Africans connected to the scene who came of age in the time of kwaito.

Thank you to Dj Linoz, Dj Hyppe Nkosi, Nana and Phehello for their time and contributions.
