Singer / songwriter, guitarist and producer Mthakathi, conjures up music that is undeniably and unflinchingly Pop/Rock, but belies a more unique and prismatic World sensibility. Drawing from a career-spanning immersion in South African culture, Mthakathi’s music reflects a keen absorption of eclectic world elements that explores expression beyond borders. In short it is, as one fan put it, “world music on jet fuel.” An innovative song-smith, compelling lyricist, arresting guitarist and a spell-binding performer, Mthakathi the “magic man,” is a pop/rock artist of world citizenry, one who defies the confines of simple categorization and smudges the boundaries of culture, genre and time.
