VIDEO ALERT: Uhuru – Y-tjukutja: New music from South Africa


South African record label Kalawa Jazmee turns 20 next year – making it the country’s longest standing local urban music independent.

Home of the the South African artists synonymous with Kwaito, Kalawa Jazmee has been at the forefront of the genre’s evolution which, over the years, has spawned hybrid sounds spanning 50s Kwela through more rugged Durban House.

The current wave of Kwaito/House music embraces a broader spectrum of South African cultures, reaching outside of South Africa to capture a more continental sound. Enter Kalawa’s latest trump card; Uhuru is the four-man producer’s collective behind this year’s biggest African club track, Mafikizolo’s Khona. Y Tjukutja is the lead single for their new album, Our Father, and a certified summer club smash hit.
