After Robot: Kwaito Music in Johannesburg (26 min, 2002)

  • Shot & Directed by Simon Klose. Edited by Svante Lodén for Swedish SVT's Musikbyrån 2002.
    After Robot, the first film I ever made, is a music doc about Kwaito - South African electronic township music. I am sharing it today in memory of Nelson Mandela. Don't mourn Madiba, celebrate him with kwaito music!
    "Kwaito music is a direct product of the freedom of black South Africa. Kwaito is the voice of the new generation, with rap in indigenous languages over slowed down house beats."
    Interviews and music by Alaska, Apple Seed, Arthur, Bongo Maffin, B.O.P., Brenda Fassie, Bruce Sebitlo, Chicco, Chiskop, DJ Oscar, Graeme Gilfillian, Hugh Masekela, Joe Nina, Junior, Lance Stehr, Kabelo, Lindelani Mkhize, Mandoza, Maria McMcloy, Msawawa, Mzambiya, Senyaka, Thandiswa & Zola.
