Solo Acoustic Guitarist | African and Contemporary | Composer and Performer

Blomdoorns (2003)

This is my first solo album, recorded in 2002. The guitar was made by Colin Cleveland, a Cape Town architect and guitar maker who agreed to build a “Brahms Guitar” which is the special 8-string guitar played by Paul Galbraith. The instrument was played with an end-pin like a cello and had one high string a one low string. The music is my own evocations of the music of the Cape, mostly inspired by my work with Alex van Heerden who I had made Sagtevlei with the year before.
