In Episode 2 of Mondstuk (mouthpiece), I played Bob Marley, a political Laurika Rauch and Sweet Honey In The Rock that sing beautifully about international debt (really!).
Then there are three songs by artists who were ministers in their countries’ cabinets, unlike here in SA where the minister of arts and culture as police minister was held responsible for the Marikana massacre.
It’s followed by two songs which challenge and laugh at Theresa May and her hero Maggie Thatcher.
Lastly, the story of “Sixteen Tons” – who’s composer was harassed as being a commie in 1940s USA.
