MARTIN MACHAPA
blackagemedia.com

Martin Machapa was born 1984 in Soweto. During his teenage years he joined 'The Aim' which was one of the most dedicated local music groups during the eighties. Martin Machapa is not only a talented person, but a music fanatic. His voice awakes one from mere reality to the world of magnificient soul satisfaction. Machapa featured in some of South Africa's most acclaimed legends such as Hugh Masekela and diva Sibongile Khumalo, and he performed at events such as the Afro Vibe festival and Playtime Festival. He launched his debut solo album entitled Tsatsi with a blend of African, jazz and opera sounds last year. The album is described as brilliant combinations of diverse and yet balanced sounds which are true reflection of Machapa. Those who love Jazz will enjoy an element of it and those who like pop will definitely find something to dance for while Opera lovers will share their slice as this album encompasses some operatic songs.
Martin is produced and supported by Ntja-Pedi Productions.
