Shangaan Electro, the electronic dance sensation that grew around extravagant producer and entertainer Nozinja has long enjoyed something of a cult status—and not only in “Joburg.” The musical styles of the Tsonga are brought up to 180 bpm and combined with a high-speed dance, a mix of Tsonga dances and Pantsula (Zulu for “like a duck”), resulting in a mix that has conquered the internet as well as clubs and radio stations all over the world.

Before and after the concert: Afrohouse by DJ Cambel Nomi

Nozinja (Shangaan Electro) is a music producer and entertainer. After growing up in the rural province of Limpopo, home of the Shangaan, he then moved to Soweto, where he opened a mobile phone workshop in a township. After meeting up with the large and enthusiastic Shangaan dance scene in Soweto, Nozinja began to develop Shangaan Electro—traditional dance and music styles combined with contemporary musical genres such as Kwaito and House. The result was a unique form of Afro-Futuristic electro-dance that soon became popular the world over.
