House Music is big in South Africa. Resident Advisor shows a video portrait of the scene in Johannesburg, interviewing producers, DJs, party organizers, showing the impact music can have in a society. Watch Real Scenes: Johannesburg

I like the vibe in this video and to take a look at a to me so far unknown area. And I like the political dimension of it: “In a city still rife with poverty, house music can offer a way out. For our latest Real Scenes film we journeyed to Johannesburg and its outer lying townships, meeting the DJs, producers, promoters and record labels who are central to its story.”
