Gqom music

Langa township





Gqom Music is a new underground genre that emerged a few years ago in South Africa that mixes wavy and bass beats. It is the latest sensation in the lineage dedicated to the drum and the dancefloor and it's becoming popular worldwide. I spent one day with some local Dj's in their studio in Langa Township (Cape Town) to have a better understanding about the importance of this music for their community and experience their creative process when producing a new song.
