In order for South African swing music to be performed and recorded by a new generation of musicians, the songs first need to be transcribed from the original audio as no sheet music exists.
The donations from our crowdfunding campaign supported the transcription of 37 songs, exceeding our target of 30 songs. In particular, 12 generous donors sponsored the songs featured on the Echoes of Sophiatown album.
