If you like soul music, you like gospel. The greatest gospel group in South Africa is called Joyous Celebration, and they shift more units than any pop act. Untouched by apartheid, possibly the reason why gospel is very big news down here. I’m posting one song here called “Total Praise” or ”Thixo Bawo” in Xhosa, which is itself an astonishing performance, and in these religious communities total praise happens in a state of euphoria, but the reason why I’m banging on about it is the “Amen” at the end. This is very special stuff indeed. A euphoric Amen.
I can’t see the video here. Maybe you can. I’ve pasted the embed link, that’s all I can do. But here’s the URL : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rq8PPSDAr-w
