Product Description:
Brenda Fassie Video(VHS/DVD). The music in this program is a detonating blend of soul, disco, and Mbaqanga—a blend of pop and traditional rhythms—from music legend Brenda Fassie, niece of Nelson Mandela. Fassie talks about her childhood days as a singer with the Tiny Tots—a street-corner group with whom she often did imitations of American folk singer Roberta Flack. Later music, which she describes as "bubble-gum," made her a star. But it was her song written and dedicated to Mandela entitled "Black President" that thrust her onto the international music scene. Banned in South Africa, the song became an international anthem for the anti-apartheid movement. (25 minutes)
