Music as healing


Raised in a lush and rugged South African landscape, where music and ritual practices are symbolically linked, pianist Nduduzo Makhathini plays with a profound spirituality; his experiences as a traditional Zulu healer are inseparable from his improvisational performance. Embracing the histories of South African jazz legends Bheki Mseleku, Moses Molelekwa, and Abdullah Ibrahim, Makhathini also blends influences from the great American jazz canon—like John Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, and Randy Weston—for a cross-continental, multilayered melodic groove.
