Amapiano voted the hottest soundtrack of 2019
Amapiano is now the hottest soundtrack of 2019
Kabza da Small and DJ Maphorisa are some of the pioneers of the new music genre that has taken Mzansi by storm.
Every decade comes with a distinctive sound – but the 2000s have seen local dance music evolve from one beat to the next.
Amapiano has undisputedly been the sound of 2019.
Sunday World reported earlier this year that kwaito legend Mafokate claimed the sound to be a sub-genre of kwaito.
“Just like trap is to hip-hop, amapiano is a sub-genre to kwaito,” he told Sunday World. In an interview with Jazzidisciples earlier this year, they claimed amapianio is upgraded house music and has a distinct jazz influence because of the piano keys dominating the track.
The sound is said to have been around since 2014. But what caught the nation’s attention was the release of Umshove by Kabza da Small.
Thanks to this hit, and a string of others, he stands as the king of amapiano today
