||The music performed in this program, from Little Sister, comes from the white capital of South Africa, Pretoria. It represents the crosscurrents of the country's pop wave, heavily reliant on American-style rock and roll. The performers, two sisters calling themselves Little Sister, describe their rise to fame as a sort of "divine accident." One sister, Debbi, describes her transition from classical guitar to electric bass guitar, and tells what it's like to be one of the few female bass guitarists in the male-dominated South African rock music arena.
