"Via Afrika erupted on to the South African music scene in the early 1980s.

During 1982 and 1983, Kensington Mansions, an apartment block on Noord
Street in central Johannesburg, became the musical and spiritual home of
Via Afrika – René Veldsman, Lukas Crouse and Michele Rowe. It was here
that René, Lukas and Michele rehearsed, ideated and generally
experimented with style and art in their quest to create a sound that
would remain distinctly fresh, original and indisputably Via Afrikan. It
was here, too, that this, the first album, was written and planned for
studio production.

Looking back, there is little doubting that Via Afrika was uniquely
outstanding in many aspects. Viewing René, Lukas and Michele beyond
their hypnotic music, their tantalising costumes and bodily adornments
and their hedonistic and, sometimes, erotic dance routines, there was
that special otherworldliness about them. Asked about the inspiration
behind the band's songwriting, René says

" … A glamorous protest against government policy, homophobia, the
constraints on freedom of expression and, generally, the rules in place
during the apartheid years. We wanted our music to be a visual
experience of textures, cultures and language – a celebration of the
wonders of being African and the realisation of this privilege.

"Our work was ahead of its time, but in later years we were recognised
for our work with a United Nations award presented by Beyers Naude in
New York City. Our style of music was strictly South African – no
boundaries, just a unique sound that grew from a free-thinking group of
musicians and artists."

Our first album, Via Afrika, was the most pirated music around at that
time," says René. "We took this as a compliment. We were not money-mad –
we liked the stuff and needed it for the equipment, sound, clothes and
the fun it bought us. We didn't make much money out of record sales –
maybe five, six or seven grand."
