Soweto Soul documentary on NPO2 Extra

On Thursday 14 October (22:20) and Saturday 16 October (17.45) the NTR will broadcast the documentary ‘Soweto Soul’ on NPO2 Extra. In this documentary, Dutch musician/producer Joep Pelt is followed on his journey of discovery into the musical soul of Soweto.

Joep’s mission is to bring together different generations of musicians to write new music that pays tribute to Soweto’s rich musical history. Filmmakers Bart Verhoeven and Jesse Bom made a documentary of the same name with Joep that shows the musical history of South Africa in the context of the Soweto Soul project.

After the release of the Soweto Soul album, a live band under the same name toured Europe several times. Soweto Soul is currently working on a new album.
