If, like most of us, you've made only a passing acquaintance with South African music, the 2010 World Cup marks the perfect excuse to build up an intimate knowledge. Known for a vibrant diversity that spans dance, world-class jazz and the hip-hop stylings of Kwaito, the country's pop scene is as rich as it is dazzling . . . and we kick off our South African selection with globally loved artists including Ladysmith Black Mambazo — who were introduced to a broad audience via Paul Simon's [i]Graceland[/i] (1986) and whose stunning vocal technique shines on "Ikhaya Lamaqhawe (Home of the Heroes)" — and the Queen of African Pop, Brenda Fassie ("Vuli Ndlela"). Follow your ears from SA rock to Tsonga disco, in Next Steps.
