South African From the Waist Down! – by the Car Guards

“South African from the waist down” is the story of a South African car guard named Silver, with a passion for poetry and music.

Silver was given the opportunity of a life time to send out his uniquely South African message to the world and keep the flag flying.

The story behind “South African from the waist down”

A friendly and effervescent car guard known as ‘Silver’ made up a catchy song to sing while watching cars parked in the streets of Cape Town.

One day, recently, he was overheard by the music composer Alistair Davis, who fell in love with the song instantly and decided to take Silver to the Kaleidosound recording studio in Cape Town to meet the music producer Gabi Le Roux, who produces numerous albums for top selling artists including Mandoza.

Gabi was initially not too keen, but Alistair really believed in the song and called his old friend Aidan who then agrees to work on the lyrics, together with Silver. Finally they approached Gabi again and this time he’s sold!

“South African from the waist down” went into production and the recorded version got a record deal with EMI South Africa.

The single is now available for download worldwide on iTunes & is also available as a mobile ringtone. It was released on June 28th on the “Halala Soccer Album”.

The music video to “South African from the waist down” showing Silver’s unique message to the world was produced by Coza Productions.
