The new channel includes a variety of curated playlists, featuring specific genres and artists that are culturally relevant for South Africans.

Deezer’s ‘Celebrate Heritage Channel’ offers something special for just about everyone with playlists including; SA’s Greatest Hits, SA House Classics, Essential SA Jazz and Gospel Gold.
Sotiris Moldovanos, Music Editor for Africa at Deezer commented: “Music has always played an important role in South African history and culture, and we want to recognise and celebrate its significance throughout the years with a dedicated channel that we know our local music fans will love and appreciate.”
So, whether you’re planning to fire up a braai, kick back and relax or ‘sokkie’ the night away, let us provide all the music you need to jump start the festivities with ‘Celebrate Heritage Month’ on Deezer.
