In 1984 Frank Zappa posed the question: “Does humour belong in music?” (though he used the American spelling of humor).
There has been humour in music for a long time, and it seems at the moment that there is resurgence of South African musicians taking a look at themselves and our society and embracing the humour of diversity.
Here are three examples:
Die Antwoord – Zef Side
Jack Parow – Cooler As Ekke
Deep Fried Man – It’s Complicated
