Amapiano (Zulu for “the pianos”[1]) is a style of house music that emerged in South Africa in 2012. Amapiano is a hybrid of deep house, jazz, and lounge music characterized by synths, airy pads, and wide percussive basslines.[2] It is distinguished by high-pitched piano melodies, Kwaito basslines, low tempo 90s South African house rhythms, and percussions from another local subgenre of a house known as Bacardi.[3]

Although the genre gained popularity in Katlehong the township East of Johannesburg, there’s a lot of ambiguity concerning its origins, with various accounts of the musical styles in the Johannesburg townships – Soweto, Alexandra, Vosloorus, and Katlehong. Because of the genre’s similarities with Bacardi, some people assert the genre began in Pretoria, and has been an ongoing debate about the origin of Amapiano.[4][5][6]

Various accounts as to who formed the popular genre make it impossible to accurately pinpoint its origins
