Worldwide FM presents ‘Cape Town Sounds’ with Gilles Peterson

mabu

Mighty, Gilles, Jacques

Worldwide FM presents ‘Cape Town Sounds’, an audio documentary which explores the rich musical heritage of Cape Town, as part of Lufthansa’s #LHcityofthemonth campaign.

The documentary follows Gilles over the course of the day as he sets out to learn about the history of the city’s music, and infiltrate the dynamic contemporary scene. He begins with the music of the Khoisan bushmen, through to Cape Jazz of the ’60s, onto hip hop of the ’80s and ’90s, through to the spoken word and current musical climate of today.

By discovering where the music is from and where it is going, Gilles discovers what makes Cape Town so special.

There is an interview with Stephen “Sugar” Segerman from Mabu Vinyl at about 18 minutes.

The classic song “Sugar Man” by Rodriguez is featured at about 20 minutes.

How can I sell my music online?

See Digital Music Sales

This is one of the questions I get asked very often by South African musicians.

In 2002 I was involved with creating the SAmp3. com portal for promoting South African music through free downloads. However there was no real way, at the time, to monetize these free give-aways.

In August 2006, I became a partner in starting Rhythm Online to sell MP3s to the world. This online store is now known as Rhythm Music Store (and also MyMusiek) and if you are a talented musician, published or unpublished, fill in the online electronic distribution agreement to have your tunes listed on Rhythm Online Music Store.

Would you like the world to hear and buy your music?

SAmp3. com can help you promote your music through channel24 and sell your MP3s to the world on the RhythmMusicStore.com.

And the best part is, there is no cost to you!

Music Sales:

If you wish to sell your music on RhythmMusicStore.com you will need to complete the easy online agreement.

All the information you need can be found there.

It’s A GOOD HOPE FM CHRISTMAS!

From CapeTown Sound

It’s A GOOD HOPE FM CHRISTMAS!

It’s A GOOD HOPE FM CHRISTMAS!

Contemporary music has always played a huge role in the celebration of Christmas – for years Bing Crosby’s ‘White Christmas’ was the biggest-selling single of all time. In more recent years John & Yoko celebrated world peace with ‘Happy Xmas’ (War Is Over) and Band-Aid raised millions for starving people in Africa with ‘Don’t They Know It’s Christmas’. These are just a few examples of how pop music has played a positive role at Christmas time.

Now, Cape Town’s premier radio station, Good Hope FM, has rallied some of Cape Town’s leading artists and invited them to make their own personal contribution to Christmas through music. The result is stunning beautiful and heart-warming. There are new versions of old festive chestnuts – plus brand-new compositions – all performed in a joyous Christmas spirit – celebrating Christmas …and Cape Town.

The beauty of Christmas meets the beauty, peace and good-will of Christmas in this truly wonderful collection of songs by some of Cape Town’s finest – made all the more special by the fact that Good Hope FM is sharing this spirit and love with all the people of Cape Town …all those who live here – and all those who visit from all over the world.

We wish you truly Happy Christmas!

Poseletso – Madiba, We Love You

MP3 of this Madiba Tribute song is available to download exclusively from RhythmMusicStore.com.

The SONG:

This song was originally composed to celebrate MADIBA’s 90th birthday.

Subsequently,  it was developed into a simple anthem of celebration …

POSELETSO is a stunning young South African lady, who dazzled IDOLS views with her stunning vocals.

Her interpretation of the lyric is calm and understated – yet inspirational …

“MADIBA’ is a simple song for a giant of mankind.

The VIDEO :

The video was made as a collective effort by students at Cape Town’s CITY VARSITY. It was made on a minimal budget – making maximum use of the student’s creativity.

As such, a beautiful, simple and organic feel was achieved – in keeping with the humility of Nelson Mandela.

‘Madiba’ was composed by Patric van Blerk, Natasha Simone & Paul Petersen – and produced by Keith de Kock & Storm FX @ CapeTown Sound in Woodstock.

The song is published by CapeTown Sound / KOHCO.
