BLK JKS: The Country Wrote A Song; The People Sang It

"The background song playing throughout the clip is a song of revolution and freedom," comments guitarist Mpumi Mcata. According to Mcata, the BLK JKS have a greater agenda for African Music - their music is raw, dirty, gritty, full of mistakes and natural music that the people need to hear.
