'A wonderful singer and songwriter destined for a very big future' NME

‘Multi-talented’ doesn’t begin to describe Nakhane. He’s won awards for his work as a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist, as well as for his writing and acting. Citing Malian musician Ali Farka Touré as an influence, Nakhane’s music also shows traces of Radiohead and David Bowie in the languid guitars and his beautiful soaring vocal harmonies. Don’t miss one of South Africa’s brightest stars.

Featured as The Guardian's 'one to watch': 'There’s an irresistible boldness to the rising South African singer who has cast aside religion and embraced his sexuality'
