Shangaan Electro, the electronic dance sensation that grew around extravagant producer and entertainer Nozinja has long enjoyed something of a cult status—and not only in “Joburg.” The musical styles of the Tsonga are brought up to 180 bpm and combined with a high-speed dance, a mix of Tsonga dances and Pantsula (Zulu for “like a duck”), resulting in a mix that has conquered the internet as well as clubs and radio stations all over the world.

Before and after the concert: Afrohouse by DJ Cambel Nomi
