* Zone-In: Kalawa Jazzmee, Channel O, 20.30
There can be few South African record labels more worthy of a Zone-In feature than Kalawa Jazzmee. Founded by Don Laka, Bruce Sebitlo and Oskido Mdlongwa, who were later joined by Mandla Spikiri, Mahoota Sibika and M’Jokes, the label first made a splash with Boom Shaka in 1993. From then on it was up, with Kalawa credited with taking kwaito to the masses and introducing fans to a great selection of artists. And the label is showing no signs of slowing down. If you’re a fan of homegrown music, don’t miss this special.
