Bright Blue from Cape Town made the list with Weeping - take a listen why Sean selected it and watch the video below
While they may not have had many hits Joy had an absolute smash with Paradise Road.
Johnny Clegg'sAsimbonanga (We have not seen him) was chosen, the video below features Nelson Mandela on stage for the performance.
Anton Goosen's Winde van Verandering (winds of change), unfortunately only a short video from a live show is available on YouTube, but the full track is played after Sean;s introduction.
While the 5 were not meant to be in any order you might agree that this is definitely one of South Africa's best known tunes and one that charted overseas too. Mirriam Makeba's Pata Pata (touch touch).
There are obviously many more and every day new South African musicians are creating music that will reflect and define our heritage, we urge you to keep adding to this list and let us know your selections below.
