CalaBashment: Vol 5 (Amapiano)
Unlike past mixes in the CalaBashment Series that highlight multiple genres in the Diaspora, Volume 5 focuses solely on the budding genre of Amapiano, distinguished by piano-led melodies, Kwaito basslines, and Afro-House rhythms. Once thought of as just a passing fad in the South African music scene, the Yanos as it is commonly referred to, has proven itself to be a sustainable ecosystem of its own. Amapiano is a movement driven by the youth, fueled by the DJs/Producers, and brought to life by the signature dance moves.
Join me as I take you on this journey. Enjoy!
