The 3 brothers from Soweto and their childhood friend who, as little boys, walked dusty dirt roads with their instruments hidden in paper bags to attend music lessons, was the beginning of a legacy that today needs no introduction. Soweto String Quartet, or SSQ for short, has released numerous albums and has become as much a part of our beautiful country s heritage as boerewors and biltong and Madiba and rugby. They are definitely one of SA s most loved instrumental ensembles having played at Nelson Mandela s presidential inauguration being one of their career highlights. Their black and white zebra striped jackets symbolise how our different cultures in South Africa need each other and SSQ themselves stand for unity and for building our nation. In 2007 they released the album, Soweto String Quartet speel Afrikaanse Treffers, under the creative direction of Louis Brittz and Merchant Music and little did they know that the album would be received so well in the South African community over culture and colour barriers alike. The album was so successful that it flew to gold status within weeks. Now, 6 years and a number of great Afrikaans hits later, SSQ and Merchant decided that it s the right time to do it again. Soweto String Quartet speel Afrikaanse Treffers Vol 2 promises to take listeners on a South African journey with songs like Timbuktu, Die Bloubul song, Baby Tjoklits, 'n Vrou wil dit hoor and Pennies Op Die Spoor to name a few played in SSQ s unique way. What makes this album extra special is that it also features collaborations between SSQ and artists like Gerhard Steyn, Dozi, Nianell and Anton Goosen on their original hit songs. This album promises to be one of the highlight albums of 2013 that should be in everyone s CD collection!

With their fifth release, South Africa's own Soweto String Quartet have once again raised their creativity and pushed musical boundaries to record an album that's perhaps their best ever!
Fresh and brimming with vitality, OUR WORLD is an album that will return SSQ to the heart of the South African nation a people that were the first to welcome the group's now signature classical African sound with open arms on the release of their debut album, ZEBRA CROSSING.
As the 12-track recording shows, SSQ might now be a globally recognised group who works hard and with commitment at expanding their international career, but at its essence the four-member group is as rooted to the soil of Africa as the Baobab tree.
And it's the latter analogy that gives some clue as to OUR WORLD's music: it's an organic sound that sprinkles just enough jazz, reggae and even Afrikaans music into the mix to turn the album into nothing short of a revelation. For starters, OUR WORLD features an amazingly beautiful and whimsically uplifting version of Summertime that is likely to earn SSQ some serious radio play and well deserved popular attention. On this version, Khanyo Maphumulo provides startlingly beautiful, yet languid vocals, featuring lyrics translated into Zulu by Concord Nkabinde and with a distinct homegrown twist.
These are just some of the musicians who add to OUR WORLD. Themba Mkhize, pianist Johan Laas, multi-instrumentalist Pops Mohammed, drummer/percussionist Barry van Zyl, horn player and rising talent, Moses Khumalo, guitarists Mauritz Lötz and George Phiri, the International Festival Orchestra and many others add sprinkles of individuality in their playing that lift the album into the musical heavens.
Other classics on the album include Take Five (SSQ goes reggae and it's reat!), a medley of Afrikaans songs (including Sarie Marais), a spiced up cover of Foreigner's I Want To Know What Love Is and an exquisitely rendered version of Pavan For A Dead Princess.
OUR WORLD has a distinct global feel. From the onset, the album which was produced by Bruce Cassidy - was conceived as variegated in style, moving with ease between traditional songs, drawn from the African continent to reggae, rock, township music, Afrikaans standards, straight - up jazz and, of course, classical music. Time was also spent on ensuring verything - from the production aesthetic to the songs to the SSQ's playing - speaks of real quality, with OUR WORLD taking a full year to record, and fitting around the group's intense live schedule.
In the end it's nothing short of a beautiful addition to SSQ's growing body of work and one that every South African should own.

For this CD the Soweto String Quartet have written eleven original pieces - and borrowed two from contemporary composers - to create this album of unique magic, with the help of some of Soweto's greatest contemporary musicians. Although SSQ make use of the most modern recording technology in these brilliant studio recordings, they never lose the wondrous joy of the live performance. The compositions are original, but the roots and the rhythms of the music are ageless, pre-dating recorded African history. The classical instruments on which they play these sweet melodies also have their own centuries-old histories. They are a timeless bridge between the formal, structured traditions of Europe and the innovative musical energy of Africa: a bridge between the old and the new; a bridge between Millennia.

"The Soweto String Quartet, from South Africa, emerged during the 80's around the nucleus of the three Khamese brothers, violinists Sandile and Thami and cellist, Reuben. The four members of the Soweto String Quartet are a political statement in themselves. They are four black classical musicians from a South African Township.
The ensemble initially faced criticism at home for their adherence to traditional European instruments, but through the years their music has absorbed native African rhythms and intonations.
This collection comprises works both contemporary and traditional, some original, and some borrowed from Africa's treasure house of melody. Also woven into this tapestry of African intonation and rhythm are unique interpretations of works by Dave Grusin, Paul Simon and Sting." -
