Welcome to Club Jiggetts!!!

   It's a Friday or Saturday night.
   The DJ is on the ones and twos.
   Bass is bumping.
   Party's pumping.
   Jiggy's jumping.
   I'm in the cluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuub!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
   Kind of.
   There are no clubs out here in the village, unless you enter my little hut on the weekends when I have dance parties. With myself. Yeah!
   These South African house music songs are always on my playlist:

DJ Ganyani's "Xibugu"

My owning a BlackBerry makes me like this song even more!

Heavy K Point featuring Mpumi's "Wena"

This is my fave South African house song. When I hear it, I tear up the dance floor!

Black Motion featuring Dr. Malinga's "Father to Be"

This is another goody!

Mafikizolo featuring Uhuru's "Khona"

This song will also get me up out of my seat.

   Of course I don't know what they're saying in theses songs but I love the beats, rhythms and melodies.
   And the village bars and the one or two clubs in the capital city will also play these popular tunes.
   Problem is that I don't go to those places for safety reasons. It is not seen as a good thing for women to go to bars because people think they cause trouble. And I'm not allowed to stay overnight in the capital city unless otherwise approved by Peace Corps staff here.
   So every weekend, I hit up what I like to call Club Jiggetts in the safety of my hut.
   It's free, I'm the DJ and I'm the No. 1 dancer.
   Club Jiggetts is in the house. Literally.


  1. All of those tracks have a really good beat, but I like the last song the best. You are too funny...Club Jiggetts! Jam on, Jiggets!

  2. They know how to party out here, Crystal! And I have to have some kind of fun!
