Saturday Morning at Essenwood Flea Market

Flickr user “ethekwinigirl” is a writer/journalist and photoblogger in Durban, South Africa. Her photoset Street Musicians shows that kwela is still performed live in open, public spaces; maybe by the same musicians who, as youngsters, performed on the streets and heard “Kwela, kwela!” as the police vans tried to round them up!

It would be so cool to hear what these guys are playing! I wonder if anyone was dancing Phata-phata for them :-)
