WHAT IS GQOM MUSIC?
Gqom is a genre of electronic dance music that emerged in the early 2010s from Durban, South Africa. It developed out of South African house music, kwaito and Techno.
The word gqom – sometimes expressed as qgom, igqom, gqomu or variants thereof – derives from an onomatopoeic combination of click consonants in isiZulu and isiXhosa meaning a hitting drum.
Top Gqom artists include, DJ Tira, Mampintsha, Distruction Boyz, Busiswa, Babes Wodumo, Tip Cee, DJ Maphorisa and many more.
The Gqom genre was developed by a young generation of technologically skilled DJs who produced in a D.I.Y. fashion with music production softwares such as Fruity Loops “FL” Studio and often self distributing their songs on streaming and file sharing platforms such as Sound Cloud, YouTube, Zippyshare. The popularity of Gqom music was further intensified by popular free mp3 download sites such as Fakaza, Hiphopza, Zamusic, and Hitvibes.
Gqom music is associated with several distinctive Southern African dance moves, like the ‘bhenga’, ‘vosho’ or the ‘gwara gwara’. Around the mid-2010s the genre began to gain relevance outside the African Continent, especially in London. Gqom associated dance moves have also been adopted by famous musicians in the United States. Rihanna performed the ‘gwara gwara’ at the 2018 Grammy awards while Donald “Childish Gambino” Glover performed it in his video for This is America.
