Makhathini’s Thanksgiving Ritual

Makhathini’s Thanksgiving Ritual

Probably, since the beginning of Makhathini’s solo career in 2014, his work of eight album releases has been explicit about its learnings, searching’s and connectedness to what he often refers to as ‘the ancestral realms’.

On his coming release under Blue Note Records, Makhathini explores what he calls ‘ritual technology’ that is to say, he argues, that our connection to our ancestors and our past is not necessarily an abstract idea, but can be proven. He believes that his improvisations evokes particular forms of texts from and to the ancestral realm, thereby creating a kind of synchronicity, parallelism and time overlap between our past (ancestors) and the now through his notion of an echo that he started exploring on ‘Mother Tongue’ (2014).

It is in this context that Makhathini is inviting us and our spirits to gather in one of his favourite venues in South Africa, Untitled Basement when he and friends will be paying tribute to the ancestors that have shine the light on the journey.

Nduduzo will feature his favourite collaborators and friends Omagugu, Linda Sikhakhane, Kagiso Ramela, Ndabo Zulu, Ayanda Sikade, Gontse Makhene and Nhlanhla Radebe.
