10 beautiful songs to give you goosebumps this Heritage Day

Heritage Day is one of our favourite days here in South Africa and we want you to join us as we provide the perfect soundtrack to the special day. Celebrate Heritage Day on East Coast Gold on 24 September 2021.

East Coast Gold

The first Heritage Day in South Africa was celebrated on 24 September 1995, endorsed by SA's first democratically-elected government. 

Prior to that - the day was known as Shaka Day in KZN, in honour of Zulu King, Shaka.

While National Braai Day was coined in 2005 - recognising the country's culinary tradition of braais or chisa nyamas - the informal barbeque hosted in the backyard of homes. 

On 24 September 2021, South Africans, political parties and local organizations have shared messages on social media - on their unique views on Heritage Day.
