Listen to the Story.

For many years, the country's sound was intertwined with the fight against apartheid.

We were used to hearing toi-toi -- the angry but joyous chanting that was the soundtrack to spontaneous demonstrations in places like Soweto.

Well, times have changed.

To wit: BLK JKS -- spelled B-L-K J-K-S, by the way.

BLK JKS is a four man band from Johannesburg.

And their music doesn't sound like anything I've heard coming from South Africa before.
