South African Music
I remember the days when South African music (for the most part) sucked in comparison to what international artists were producing. And then, the apartheid walls came down and people we free to say what they felt; and South African music blossomed.

We grew up following international artists and bands, so for me it's strange to see how South Africans today clamber after and support South African music; not due to blind patriotism and not because the music has a cultural significance, the artists have simply become so good at what they do that today they compare with, and sometimes exceed, their international peers.

If you have some time to watch, and listen, take a look at the page that I put together with a few South African music videos. Safe as Houses by aKing is a special favourite of mine. :)
