Usizwe Namatshitshi

Best African band I have heard. Listen to them...if you can find any of their music.

Some good stuff, I'm totally clueless about African music actually (Fela Kuti and Youssou n' dour are familiar though) so very happy to explore!

Does anyone know any prog-rock bands out of Africa? I found a couple of lists here, any recs?

I set a long-term music goal of having 100 10/10s (currently at 81). Thought it may take ages but thanks to African music I might accomplish this goal quite soon.
