Shangaan Electro x Dazed Digital

Dazed Digital enlists Soweto dance collective Shangaan Electro for an exclusive video as a part of their Exhibit A experimental film series.


London's Dazed And Confused tapped Soweto dance collective Shangaan Electro to bring it exclusively for their Exhibit A experimental film series. The rooftop soiree is the latest display of lightning speed xibelani moves to hit the web– a craze which started in 2005 when Limpopo-born cell phone repair shop owner turned musician/label guru Richard “Nozinja” Mthethwa energized the life of traditional Shangaan music by pioneering its maniacal offshoot, which kicked his province's traditional 110 BPMs all the way up to 180-183. For Nozinja's full explanation on the meaning and roots of Shangaan Electro head here and watch the Dazed Digital video below.
