South African history, through Rashid Lombard’s lens

Rashid Lombard's collection consists of roughly 500 000 photographs made over 50 years, from the 1960s onwards. These include musicians and gigs, high-ranking political figures (including a significant portion on Nelson Mandela after his release from Robben Island), political protests and everyday moments of life under apartheid."

The story is about his quest to digitise his collection and create a new photographic centre through his own vision, while also handing over his entire archive to the custodianship of UWC.

Nourin Mohamed Siddig: The African art of reciting the Koran

"According to historian Sylviane Diouf the chants, prayers and recitation of enslaved West African Muslims - which can sound similar to that of Muslims across the Sahel region to Sudan and Somalia - may have contributed to the creation of "the distinctive African American music of the South that evolved into the holler and finally the Blues".
According to tradition, the Koran, Islam's holy book, is typically recited in a singing manner, encouraged by the Prophet Muhammad, who said that people should "beautify the Koran with your voices.
It is especially appreciated when large numbers come together for religious occasions such as evening prayers in the month of Ramadan, taraweeh.
There are even several international recitation competitions.
Overlooked at times, however, is the fact that there are many approaches to reciting the Koran."

Social media has revived African styles of Koranic recitation led by Sudan's Nourin Mohamed Siddig.

22.03.22. For todays's show, Future Nostalgia founding member Boeta Gee ( Graeme Arendse ) presents a guest mix from the Afromap of Space - a series of mixes which started regularly under lockdown. The Afromap of Space is an attempt to explore the roots and routes of the Black world through sound – transcending time, space and borders, with shifts from Gwo Ka to Ghoema to Gnawa.

In this episode, we pay homage to the greatest revolution the world has seen – the Haitian Revolution (1791-1804), which led to the establishment of the first black-led republic and the first independent Black state✊🏾

Brilliant work! Future Nostalgia family, Boeta Gee aka Graeme Arendse incredible hand-drawn portrait of multi-instrumentalist Hilton Schilder appears on the cover!

We're very pleased to be able to announce the arrival of “The South African Jazz Real Book (Vol. 1), Jika”, a collection of leadsheets covering 116 compositions by 86 South African composers.

The book, fondly named "Jika" after an album of Winston "Mankunku" Ngozi, was put together over several years by two Cape musicians, educators and band leaders, namely trombonist Jannie "Hanepoot" van Tonder and pianist George Werner, who have both shared the stage with many of the musicians whose work is included.

Says George: "We have such a rich heritage of jazz, which is not being sufficiently taught in our schools and universities, partly because of a lack of such a resource. Despite being widely and internationally recognised, we hardly hear it on the radio or see it on tv. Yet we have definitive styles of indigenous jazz music, on par with Brazilian, Cuban, and American counterparts. Let's try make South African Jazz more accessible to teachers and students everywhere, before our culture gets gobbled up by mass media."

To this end, they are thankful for the support of the National Arts Council of South Africa who sponsored 150 copies of "The South African Jazz Real Book (Vol. 1), Jika" which are at the moment being distributed to schools and universities country-wide.

“The South African Jazz Real Book (Vol. 1), Jika” will be available from December 1st for order online at https://www.sheetmusic.co.za, or contact Nick Green at [email protected]

26.10.2021 - Today's show is a special one 🌹

‘Rotations of ‘Bismillah’ is a sonic zine mix consisting of sounds that interrogate what we mean by “African” music - including various field recordings, library records and albums from across the continent including Gabon, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Somalia, Ethiopia, South Africa, Niger, Guinea, Gambia and more. It works as an accompaniment to the “Bismillah” (2019) zine that explores the idea of Islam in Africa through a mash-up of record covers, arabic calligraphy, poetry, liner notes, song titles and archival material using sound, text and image.

She went against all odds, persevered through much difficulty and left behind an incredible legacy of work, such as her album, "African Songbird" amidst other great records which remain underrated. Future Nostalgia was also privileged to host her at one of our events in July 2013, and she will always remain deeply connected to us." — Future Nostalgia
