    Cultures Of Soul focus on the the intermediary forms of music in SA that filled the gap between the musical styles of mbaqanga and bubblegum in this important period, both musically and politically.

    Starting from the early 80s, when bands like Varikweru, Black Five and Soundburger essayed local attempts at boogie and jazz-fusion, through experiments like the Madonna-cloned diva Margino, who domesticized the burgeoning Italo-disco and NYC electro sounds, up through the massive breakthrough of Brenda and the Big Dudes, who arrived at the right mix between native and international influences to point the way forward for South African pop.
