Via Afrika – Hey Boy

Posted in MUSIC by jumpmagicjump on February 21, 2011

I totally love this song. It’s by a South African band who were around from 1983-1985, the country’s darkest years of Apartheid. In the lead singer Rene Veldsman’s  own words they were  “a glamorous protest against government policy, homophobia, the constraints on freedom of expression and, generally, the rules in place during the apartheid years”. And even though the track was banned on the radio, it became a cult hit for both white and black South Africans.

This isn’t the official video for ‘Hey Boy’ I think someone just soundtracked this footage of some crazy Sowetan train surfing. Enjoy!
