African Jazz - A style that emerged subsequently from marabi – the first Black South African musical style to evolve in the urban residential areas inhabited by the new Black working class, which was created by the advent of industrialisation in South Africa in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Between the 1920s and 1960s, a series of urban working-class musical styles developed that merged African musical elements with the contemporary popular African-American musical styles of Ragtime and Blues with roots deep in the African tradition. Marabi was characterised by the piano and organ in the early 1920s and, later, by the guitar, bass and drums. Marabi is regarded as having mother body black South African jazz influenced by American musical style in this series, broadly - being tsaba-tsaba, African jazz, kwela and mbaqanga.
