Maskanda

The question put to me was:

How does a self-taught white boy from Pietermaritzburg end up in a world-famous South African township band?

This is what started me: (click the buttons to play or pause the audio):

Those maskanda - (maskanda is a contraction of the Afrikaans musikant) minstrels striding past the transfixed boykie at the front garden gate will never know what they started!

So, I wrote a book, subtitled

"WAT MAAK JY MET DIE WIT SEUN?"

And. That. Is. Jaz
