Louis Ribeiro: immortal through his music

South African musician and anti-apartheid activist Louis Ribeiro passed away in London on October 23 after a long illness. He was 55-years-old. He left South Africa in the late 1980s and released two albums in the UK, Under African Skies, which he produced with the African Centre, and The Harvest.
Go and listen to samples of some of his songs at (on the left side of the page.) My favourite is Shoshaloza. I love the way he fused African sounds with other genres.
Ndiyakumamele, Louis!
