“This is an exciting time for traditional music lovers. For a long time I have been seeking ways to revive the Maskandi music, not only for South Africans’ consumption, but also for people who stay abroad who wish to connect with their African roots through music. This platform affords me that opportunity to take this rare gem of music to the people. We are well on our way of preserving our heritage, and I am proud to be part of this innovative drive. I implore people around the country, and beyond to support this initiative so that we can continue feeding their musical taste buds, while we also assist emerging artists in this genre find their voice, and regale fans and lovers of this particular traditional music.” – Ihashi Elimhlope
