Just after Christmas I will have the musical treat of the year when one of my favourite singers in the world and I get to perform a duo recital in the snowy Swiss Alps. Musanete has been collaborating with me on stage for more than 7 years and we have made various composers sound fresh and alive with his smooth vocal tone and my aim to create arrangements that would do his talents justice.
Earlier this year we released an album with only the music of Gershwin entitled Gershwin Songbook and working with Musanete on this project was so easy. He is one of the most natural and gifted improvisers I know. Originally from Zimbabwe Musanete studied at the University of Pretoria and that is where we met.
On 30 December we will perform a duo recital of songs and improvisations we like and will warm up the town hall in Ernen, Switzerland. I look forward to this first of many duo concerts with Musa (as I call him). What a great guy. He is a deeply spiritual person and even has a black belt in Taekwondo. This is a dream come true – a clever singer who can serve as a bodyguard!
On a serious note – if you are in Switzerland over the Festive Season and you would like to attend this concert, mail firstname.lastname@example.org today and reserve your seat.
