Heart FM together with Oddball Concepts and Loukmaan Adams present The Jive Culture Shock.

(‘Jingles’ refers to the tambourine, an instrument played in a minstrel troupe. ‘Karinkles’ refers to a vocal run, unique to the Malay choirs/ Nederlands song.)


The Jive Culture Shock streams weekly as a series of 4 episodes. It includes story inserts, guest judges, viewer videos and a surprise international element.

The main attraction in each episode is the competition between 2 cultural teams, battling to reach the finale. Each team performs both minstrel and Malay choir items.

A panel of judges as well as the viewers decide the winner from each episode by way of an online voting ballot. The finale will be made up of the 3 winning teams from each episode.

We’ll see the likes of Armien Vardien, Omar Adams, Terry Fortune, Emo Adams, Sheecas Closet, Marc Lottering, David Kramer and Sophia Foster giving their opinions on the teams’ performances. Guest artists performing are Karin Kortje and Mujahid George and of course the host Irma G.


There will be a donation drive during each episode to raise funds for the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Trust in support of the Upgrade and Expansion of the Emergency Centre. People are urged to pledge toward this worthy cause, as every cent counts toward their R5-mill target.

Not only does this event give our youth (and young at heart) the opportunity to express themselves, it also gives the viewer a festive getaway from life’s Covid-19 challenges. With so much sad news, this production aims to give people an escape, even for just a while.
