Moses Taiwa Molelekwa - Finding One's Self

iTunes

Finding One's Self (BW053)
Debut album

Originally released in 1994, "Finding One's Self" garnered much praise from all quarters. Moses won the SAMA Best Jazz award in 1995 aged 24. Accolades for this first, yet surprisingly mature collection: " Molelekwa is widely hailed as the inheritor of Abdullah Ibrahim's mantle, a creator of hymn-like harmonies rolling under jubilantly jazzy melody lines, propelled by the leaping vitality of South Africa township music" John Fordhaham, The Guardian.
By 1998 , his album "Genes & Spirits" had conquered new territory, incorporating drum 'n' bass and combining programming and live virtuosity. International recognition was quick to follow. This music examines Moses' roots. Eleven years later, it stands up brilliantly.
