Attraction details
Type: Specialty Shops, Shopping
Owner description: The premier and possibly the only specialty African CD shop in the world. We have a range of around 3000 titles , mostly South African music, covering all genres as well as a growing range of pan African sounds. We have existed for close to 15 years, and continue to expand our knowledge and reputation. Arena Magazine rated us as one of the 8 best music outlets in the world! We maintain a warm welcoming atmosphere in the store, and our knowledgable staff are always ready to pay personal attention to anyone needing help on choosing music. We have a bank of listening Places for customers to sample the delights of African music. Also on offer is a range of T shirts and curios, carefully chosen mainly from self-help groups in the rural areas of South Africa. These curios are generally not available at the many other curio outlets around the city. A visit to Cape Town isn't complete without stopping in to see us.
