Traditional South African music generally uses voices only or voices and drums. This is sung in a language such as Zulu or Xhosa.
Singing will consist of call and response, call by one singer and response by lots.
Afropop has changed over the years but generally uses electric guitars that weave in and out of each other plus some traditional instruments such as the penny whistle, keyboards, bass and drums.
