Book Description

This is the true story of a standout artist in the field of pop and sentimental song; a star entertainer who rose to fame in Cape Town, South Africa. The world reflected in this book has several genealogical strands reaching back to other histories – to the nineteenth century theatre, to the rise of racism in South Africa, and the ways people were forced to negotiate the contradictions of being human against impossible odds. We encounter a biographer with a subject which is close to him, and which he has meticulously researched over a course of time.

The book offers insights into the musical world of the phonograph, of the global popular culture after the Second World War and how this was absorbed into Cape Town’s popular culture.
