Have you planned soon detour to South Africa, away from the cold, wet November weather in one of the most diverse countries in the world? You must not forgo rockabilly flair in the rainbow nation. In recent years a thriving scene has emerged in cities such as Johannesburg, with burlesque dancers, hot rod enthusiasts and young bands between Old School 50s sound and dirty psychobilly. Who has approached his trip in November, has even the opportunity to visit, South Africa’s first rockabilly next to Safari and Beach ‘Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells’ Festival.
Rock and Roll Music for White
His marriage in the 50’s, Rockabilly in South Africa played hardly any role. It was crucial that he mostly was considered by the black people music of white performers for a white audience. That stood in sharp contrast to the United States, where “concerned citizens” along with the Ku Klux Klan went up in arms against the “jungle rhythms” that threatened the morals of an innocent (fair-skinned) youth.
Because the record companies, who supplied the South African market, aimed solely to a white layer of buyer, you got here but little by artists such as Chuck Berry and Little Richard. Rock ‘n’ roll records revealed it only by white artists buy and for live performances, British teenager stars as the eternal Sunnyboy Cliff Richard were required first and foremost. The reaction of the black population on such performances was accordingly modest. As the English rock ‘ n’roller Tommy Steele in two concerts for a black audience in Johannesburg appeared, the half of the Hall was empty.
Exceptions confirm the rule here. Some rock and roll a few plates of black South African musicians show that between 1956 and 1958 released the recordings of the Bogard brothers, who recorded some of the funkiest cover of Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley songs as a duo (bass and guitar), music history has ever produced-above all.
