The oldest dance in Africa, Xho-pera and the klopse

So whether it is learning the oldest dance in South Africa or experiencing a new musical form like Xho-pera, we thought we should share a small sample of these acts here:

A few children from Fisantekraal who are part of a project called Peace and Love International came to the Bush Radio studios and were interviewed by Bassie on Backchat. We asked them to perform a song for us.
