Africa Soul is a first for South Africa. Their music is pure soul and blues, taking songs from the 1950's/1960's era of Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Cris Redding and other music icons and giving those `old' classics a `young' rebirth.
Soweto has always been alive with music. The dance rhythms of Kwela, the syncopated guitars of Mbaqanga, the saxophones and trumpets of swaying African jazz and the voices of people singing in joyous, easy harmony.
Since the time they dared to step onto the front porch of the pantheon of popular music in 2000 in an attempt to follow in the footsteps of fame, Watershed have revealed themselves to be an outfit who can produce songs that are instantly recognizable and yet utterly unique.
