Thagana Krila Gobingca George KaMxadana, Deputy Chairman Arts & Culture Trust (ACT), founder member of the Mzantsi Traditional Orchestra
“A superb work of art, with in-depth factual research. Musicologists, educational institutions, art and culture practitioners and the general public will welcome this long-overdue book. A great reference for traditional music in South Africa, much of which is threatened by extinction. Well done to the Drum Cafe on this enriching initiative!”

Pops Mohammed (‘The Futurist’), traditional instrument specialist; ancient, present and future musician / producer / composer
“The Drum Cafe’s Traditional Music of South Africa is a true musical journey to the many different styles of indigenous music we had in the past, still and always have, in and around South Africa. Dating back to many, many generations, it addresses very important issues about who we are; where we come from and where we go from here. And in its own humble way also offers us a true way of really seeing ourselves as an African nation in every sense of the word and allows us to be proud to be South Africans. This book is beautifully illustrated and will give readers, both young and old, a new vision and understanding why it is vitally important for us as South Africans to know our own history. I congratulate all the Drum Cafe crew, Laurie Levine and Anthony Caplan for a job well done!”

Andrew Tracey (Professor), International Library of African Music, Rhodes University
“All credit to the Drum Cafe for introducing people to the fundamentals of African musicality through drumming, and now for giving us this own book about our own music.”
