When the Whites go Marching in: Lopa Kothari joins the England supporters' brass band at the World Cup in South Africa, and introduces highlights of the live music at the Fan Parks, including a set from the kwaito queen of the townships, Thandiswa Mazwai.

Yes, more of that great music we've been hearing on TV World Cup broadcasts. South Africa has one of the world's richest musical cultures, and artists like Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Hugh Masekela are major international stars. Local music is playing an essential role in the World Cup, with performances of live music at the official Fan Parks. In the first of two programmes, we hear music from the Rustenburg Fan Park - and there's that special session with the England Band, the brass ensemble that follows the England team everywhere, and who will be swapping football anthems with Johannesburg choir Memeza.
