Backed, compiled and media-partnered by South Africa’s “Official World Cup Station,” Radio 2000, “South Africa: Sound of a Nation” aims at being an all inclusive compilation snapshot of South Africa’s very best music, featuring the biggest artists and best tracks across time.
An album that embodies the stations scope, vision and eclectic playlists it will be an album that will hold obvious appeal for tourists and locals alike, with these ultimate and carefully selected classics.
Nicely priced, and packaged beautifully with a similar view to an eclectic snapshot of this nation made from various snapshots of musicians, landscapes, textures, animals, the SA flag, etc. It is a perfect momento of time spent in SA for, but also far beyond, the world cup.
The album featuring tracks from Mahlatini & Mohatella Queens, Siphokazi, Ringo, Oliver Mtukudzi, Stimela among others is out June 2011.
