Watch an exclusive Shangaan electro video

September 2013

Stream "Tivani Dollezer" a video by producer, record label boss, talent scout, party promoter and performer Richard Mthetwa aka Nozinja. Mthetwa is featured in The Wire 356's Invisible Jukebox, tested by Dave Stelfox.

Mthetwa is a pioneer and proselytiser of Shangaan electro, a frenetic strand of electronic music that rarely dips below 180 beats per minute, soundtracking the street dancing of his hometown Malamulele in the South African province of Limpopo. Mthetwa toured Europe earlier this year with Shangaan electro musicians and dancers.
