Ubuntu Beat Radio was established in 2010 and started its first broadcast in 2011 through Samurai.FM which was the biggest independent music broadcaster globally. The main idea behind the foundation of the online radio station was to make South Africa a recognizable Alternative music destination globally with some of the best music curators and tastemakers in non-mainstream genres.

 

The selection of music programmed is very broad and transcends many past and emerging genres within the independent music scene. The station boasts a collection of DJs each with their own unique touch and taste which you'll hear on the individual radio shows.
