This is David Jenkins and Maqhinga Radebe, the principal members of Qadasi, a maskanda band from Durban. They played a terrific set at the Freedom Day concert at Nirox. Qasadi means ‘white person’ in isiZulu. David grew up in Empangeni, and his journey into the heart and soul of traditional Zulu music recalls that of his idol and inspiration, Johnny Clegg, for whom he once opened as a support act.
