Southern Africa is a riot of life and colour because of two great ocean currents that sweep around the continent's Cape. To the east, the warm Agulhas current generates clouds that roll inland to the wettest place in southern Africa. To the west is the cold Benguela current, home to more great white sharks than anywhere else. Moisture laden fog rolls inland, supporting an incredible desert garden. Where the two currents meet, the clash of warm and cold water creates one of the world's most fabulous natural spectacles - South Africa's sardine run. This is the greatest gathering of predators on the planet, including Africa's largest, the Bryde's whale.

Tania Rashid and director Simon Rawles are in South Africa to investigate why there is such a demand for skin bleaching products in the Rainbow Nation. The government has passed strict laws to protect people from creams containing potentially dangerous chemicals which can lead to serious health complications, but as Unreported World reveals, many are still on sale widely and endorsed by celebrities. A recent study found an incredible one in three women in South Africa use skin-bleaching creams, and there are more than 500 different products for sale. In downtown Johannesburg the products are everywhere - despite the ban on any product selling itself as skin-lightening or whitening.

This classic recording has a beautiful balance of African aesthetics meet American soul, jazz, funk, rock and pop. The songs have a vintage sound that could only have been made by a South African playing American music in 1971. Along these lines, the album cover is the perfect visual representation of the music. While having a 1970's sound, "Hugh Masekela & the Union of South Africa" is by no means outdated, nor will it ever. The disc has an enjoyable mix of slow ballads, township infused instrumentals and fast funk. The song writing is superb, the musical improvisation is good and the voices soar.

Over the decades, many musicians from the African-American ethnic group have turned to Africa for musical inspiration. For some, it was to prove only a partial or brief flirtation, while others embraced the tonal and rhythmic elements the continent’s music had to offer on a more serious basis. We have collected the best of the latter here. The American musicians assembled on this compilation were certainly not the only ones to mine the inspirational qualities of African music in the Fifties and Sixties but these were the principal players who chose to add a little colour and ethnicity to their repertoire.
