*Mike Del Ferro and the Afrikan Heritage Ensemble Release First-of-A-Kind Fusion of Classical Tunes and Amahubo Songs Album*

*When original sounds collide, magic is created. The music legends Mike
Del Ferro, a Dutch Pianist who has made it his life mission to travel
around the globe and create music and Mbuso Khoza – founder of the Afrikan
Heritage Ensemble, who is renowned for his passion for culture and
maintaining the depth of traditional music, especially Amahubo, have shared
the stage a few times in the past.* This time they have cooked a
one-of-kind musical compilation where piano and traditional Amahubo songs
are fused to produce an original and sensational album that will be
launched on *23 June* at the *Joburg Theatre.*

According to Del Ferro, narrow-mindedness is a curse to society and through
travel and meeting with inspiring musicians around the globe allows for
like-minded individuals to create powerful music that will not only
entertain, but also inspire people who appreciate good music. “I am excited
about this great project we are launching with Khoza and his Ensemble. This
is a product that defies the stereotypic views about how far one can go
with their craft. Two strong original forms of music have come together to
create a jewel that promises to be music to many-a-people’s ear.
Versatility, passion and creativity played a huge role in coming up with
this jewel of an album,” says Del Ferro.

The self-titled Album: Afrikan Heritage Ensemble featuring Mike Del Ferro
boasts 10 tracks of traditional arrangements by Mbuso Khoza was recorded at
the South African Broadcasting Corporation studios in South Africa in 2018
and produced by Mike Del Ferro.

“Music is an art, packaging it is informed by creativity and delivering it
should be an unsurpassed craft. This is a first for South Africa, and it is
a taste of rich history and cultures through music. If one would take the
history of a piano and that of Amahubo, they would see that there are so
many similarities. This Album was inspired by the history our country with
modernisation of culture. For me, this album showcases a marriage of two
cultures to present social cohesion that will make sense to our
generation,” says Khoza.

“We look forward to giving a taste of this beautiful craft through a life
performance at The Joburg Theatre and encourage music lovers who have an
ear for great music to join us for this one-night only experience limited
to a few patrons,” adds Khoza.

The Album launch will take place at Joburg Theatre’s ‘The Fringe’ on 23rd
June and tickets are available at Pick ‘n Pay stores or
from R200 – R300 per ticket
