the tweet of the bird as it sings its madrigal.
The chirp of the cricket, the trumpet of the ruster early in the morning. Most of all the sound of the African drum.
I remember so well how every night out in the village I would hear the sound of distant African drums. As one listened the sound went straight to the core of ones soul.
Growing up in the mother land was a beautiful thing. I was particularly lucky to have had parents that were as ambitious as they were hard working.
I grew up listening to all sorts of music. Jazz; from Lou Armstrong to Miles Davis. Rock and roll ; from Chuck Berry to Elvis. Pop; from the Beatle to Michael Jackson. Soul; from James Brown to Aretha Franklin. R&B from The OJs to Luther Vandros. Blues; from B.B. King to Eric Clapton. African; from Hugh Masekela to Baba Maal. I even love me some country from Kenny Rogers to
John Denver. I sure come a long way y'all.
My music is influenced by those pulsating rhythms of the African drums and the choruses from the matsano It is them mixed and embelished with all the music
I grew up with plus a touch of contemporary sounds like hip hop and rap. Personally my music has no end in itself but simply to exist and be beautiful. When you listen to it therefore take it ,enjoy it. It belongs to you.
Is the first cd I have released Meaning "it's been long time coming."
