Jozi Maboneng Radio provides a platform to nurture and promote Johannesburg’s rich musical talent. Inspired by the bold vision of the ground-breaking Maboneng Precinct, Jozi Maboneng Radio celebrates the richness of inner-city culture with an online radio station that captures the spirit of Johannesburg’s diverse influences and eclectic inhabitants, and transmits it to the world.
Jozi Maboneng Radio’s music policy reflects the inspirations of the city’s creative inhabitants. House music is ubiquitous in South Africa, and the station will showcase the most forward-thinking producers in this fertile scene that has entrenched South Africa’s position on the global music map. But it won’t be bound to what is fashionable at the moment. DJs will be selected for their commitment to soulful, quality music from all over the world, from hip-hop, funk and disco to techno, jazz, with a particular nod to the local Johannesburg scene.
What’s important for Jozi Maboneng Radio is to support local talent. Not only will the station transmit quality music, but it also will work with the local community to put on events that link with other like-minded organisations and creatives.
