29 Oct #NowPlaying: Songs of Protest
Social movements the world over have always produced a wealth of subsequent music. Over the duration of the #FeesMustFall movement and the ongoing #EndOutsourcing protests, South African musicians have plugged into the online revolution and shown their support in the form of songs and poety that bring together images, news reports, and explosive samples from protest action on the ground. We’ve put together a playlist of these tracks by artists such as The Kiffness, Angel-Ho and Aewon Wolf.
Trigger warning: Some songs contain sounds of violence/stun grenades.
