What does DJ Ready D say?

Grand Master Ready D shared his thoughts on Africa’s influence on the world of music. “Globally we are seeing Africa’s influence on music getting stronger and stronger, more and more Africans are making it onto the global scene and so are the unique sounds from Northern, Eastern, Western and Southern Africa. We want to celebrate these musical roots through the use of the ghoema drum.

“The ghoema is one such unique sound that I believe should be celebrated as part of not only African culture but South African culture too. Through the G-Squad Challenge, I am looking to introduce the sound to the rest of the continent and the country and share the Cape Malay cultural sound with the youth, especially, as in order to know your future, you have to first know your past.”
