Mango GrooveStreaming Video - 2013
The sound of the group Mango Groove and its multiracial members is the sound of the new South Africa. Punchy, vibrant, bursting with life and color, it is an infectious jive, a melodious fusion of the traditional three-chord structure of marabi rhythms, pop, and jazz - all built around the piercing sound of the pennywhistle. Mango Groove's founder, John Leyden, traces the group's fascinating history from its roots in Sophia Town, the legendary freehold settlement that gave birth to the first fusion of the American big band sound and traditional African rhythms.
