This chapter discusses the account of entertainer and cultural commentator David Kramer. He has contributed significantly to an understanding of South Africa's multifarious sociopolitical transitions. His work not only emphasizes his role in protest, conciliation, and reconciliation, but also celebrates the abounding possibilities cultural diversity offers, especially in the process of unification and nation building in a relatively young democracy. In addition, the chapter discusses his treatment of linguistic, musical, performance, and cultural styles and forms, and how he addresses and represents past and present complexities of multiculturality and national identity. The syncretic nature of his oeuvre constructs avenues through which individuals can gain insight into the range of cultural customs and traditions of a multifaceted populace.

Keywords:   David Kramer, South Africa, sociopolitical transitions, multiculturality, oeuvre, multifaceted populace
