Kwaito Bodies

Book Pages: 288 Illustrations: 35 illustrations Published: April 2020

Author: Xavier Livermon


Kwaito Bodies is a much-needed corrective to the history of popular culture in South Africa. With the deft insight of a seasoned ethnographer and through legible prose that suffers nothing by way of sophisticated analytics, Xavier Livermon renders a complicated narrative about how the musical form Kwaito holds promise for a whole generation of sexual dissidents in Post-Apartheid South Africa. This book is a game changer for African sexuality studies.” — E. Patrick Johnson, author of Honeypot: Black Southern Women Who Love Women
