NEW MUSIC ALBUM: EMOJI
This is a mature album by an artist who utilises the full spectrum of his talent and experience. The mostly original repertoire includes work in English, Afrikaans, Khoisan, and Zulu, as well as some stunning instrumental tracks. Again the astounding production is by Jaconell Mouton.
A stellar cast of musicians join the artist on this album. Dave Koz again makes a guest appearance, this time recorded on the island of Santorini. Karen Zoid and Elvis Blue take a bow on two tracks, and kora and kalimba legend Pops Mohamed plays on the track Naledi; he is joined by the 87 year old Khoisan elder !Gubi on a track that is bound for World Music acknowledgment. Other artists on the album include Leon Gropp, the a capella group No Limits under the leadership of Kgomotso Moshugi, the Turkish duduk player Gürkan Çakmak on a track recorded in Athens, Greece. The cutting-edge hip hop artist Hemelbesem appears on a rousing rap track, and Grammy winner Wouter Kellerman blows up a storm on an original instrumental track.
