Composer, singer and leader of the Maskandi group Vukazithathe, Bheki Cele is a multi-instrumentalist, whose first album Makhosazane was released in 2006. Cele plays, among other instruments, concertina, violin, harmonica and guitar on stage, accompanied by a bassist and a drummer. He is known for impressive guitar skills, lightning speed vocals and brilliant storytelling. This is what Mahala magazine had to say about his performance at the 2015 Cape Town Nu World Music Festival: “Bhekisenzo didn’t say much. He didn’t need to. The moment he started playing those elegant African guitar riffs, the room was soaked in soul.” Bheki also performed to a packed to capacity BeatBarn at the 2015 Rocking The Daisies.
