South African Showcase: Spoek and Hugo

Spoek Mathambo, is a self-proclaimed Afrofuturist from Johannesburg, South Africa.  He has been blessed with recent internet press due to his unique fusion of electro and traditional African music and vivid music videos.  He was in Los Angeles last weekend and performed with Rainbow Arabia.  This video was shot by Pieter Hugo, a photographer from Cape Town who received art-world notoriety for his 2008 exhibition on Nollywood (Nigerian Cinema), which is now the 2nd largest film industry in the world, (first being Bollywood).
