I had one of the most amazing day’s of my musical life yesterday at the headroom studio, Durban, South Africa..
I was honoured by such incredible singers recording on 2 of my tracks for the next ep i’ll be releasing in July. I spent the day with Albert Mazibuko – an original member of Ladysmith Black Mambazo as he weaved soulful vocals with the warmest of hearts on my songs.. it blew me away. Lu Dlamini sung with so much passion and power I could hardly believe it, and Zamo Mbutho from Miriam Makeba’s band layered such spine tingling vocal bass rhythm’s it put everyone in a trance!
The creativity and craftsmanship flowing round the studio was incredibly inspiring and beautiful. Neil Snyman worked his magic as engineer and conductor, Steve Newman and his son spent the day quietly playing guitar and hanging out, as did blues guitarist Madala Kunene and friends! Ken Kutsch worked his magic in peacekeeping and general wonderful vibes, as did Marius from the headroom, Thom Pierce taking photo’s, Andy cooking up a feast for us..
Photo’s coming soon… music coming soon! Feeling very grateful for that day that i’ll remember forever x
