Punk In Africa✵ ✶ ✷ ✸ ✹

… tells the story of the multi-racial punk movement within recent political and social upheavals experienced in three Southern African countries - South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe - tracing the music to its roots in the underground rock music of early 1970s Johannesburg, to the Soweto Uprising and the militant anti-apartheid hardcore and post-punk bands of the 1980s, to the rise of celebratory African-inspired ska bands in the democratic era of the 1990s, to today, as an emerging generation of bands continue to draw on this legacy to confront the political challenges of contemporary Zimbabwe and the uncertain identity issues of the Afrikaans minority in South Africa.
