The story of South Africa’s all-time favourite band ‘Harari’. The significance of Harari as one of the most important bands from the late 60's to the early 80's and its influence on popular music in Southern Africa cannot be overstressed. Harari's muscial excellence and influence on generations of musicians is equal to legends like 'Third World' or 'Funkadelic'. UbuntuFM's King Vusi Mavuthela recounts their story in this chronology.
