Zapiro does it again! And how! The comic moral conscience of South Africa. Keep them coming. South Africa needs you!

Abdullah Ibrahim teams up with South African musicians to record music rooted in the South African local jazz tradition. Thumbs up for the effort!

This review is from: Mama Africa [DVD] (DVD)
Beautifully crafted documentary tracing Miriam Makeba's life fighting Apartheid.
Honest and touching in its composition. The Makeba icon is portrayed as a normal woman which is refreshing.

This review is from: Tranquility (Audio CD)
Bosman teams up with pianist Paul Hanmer to produce a début album of breathtaking beauty. Remembering Thami Mnyele is tender tribute to a fallen artist murdered in a cross-border raid by the the South African Defence Force in the repressive heyday of Apartheid. Bosman's voice is versatile but nevertheless she brings a dramatic edge to the recordings underlined by Hanmer's subtle piano playing.

Louis Mhlanga has talent by the bucket-load and this is evident in this recording. For anyone who is interested in the commercial guitar sounds of South Africa and neighbouring Zimbabwe, this CD's for you!


To the Point: The No-holds-barred Autobiography

1.0 out of 5 stars Self-indulgent obsession, 13 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Herschelle Gibbs was a talented cricketer, end of story. There's no need to read about his alcohol consumption and wild parting on the eve of crucial international games for South Africa. Given his shallow life off the field even a recognised biographer would have had trouble filling more than a couple of pages.


Basil D'oliveira: Cricket and Controversy
Basil D'oliveira: Cricket and Controversy
by Peter Oborne
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Hero or Sportsman?, 13 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I expected more from this auto/biography. D'Oliviera comes across as almost apologetic for his involvement in the MCC/Pretoria regime power struggle. Understandably this is a story about a young man's passion for cricket, but this was also one of the highly contested sport/political clashes in recent memory. The repercussions of which saw South African Cricket being banned from the international arena. An unwilling hero?


King Leopold's Ghost: A story of greed, terror and heroism
King Leopold's Ghost: A story of greed, terror and heroism
by Adam Hochschild
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbingly honest, 13 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The gruesome exploits of one man's hankering after paternal recognition and ultimately global power. This book should be compulsory reading in all Belgian secondary schools and tertiary institutions.
