Sibusile Xaba

South African charismatic guitarist Sibusile Xaba has a dreamy vocal style which is beautifully combined with a guitar style that is rooted in expressive picking, taking inspiration from mentors such as Madala Kunene and Dr Philip Tabane. Xaba’s debut album, Open Letter to Adoniah is a musical letter to his child, reverent of life and its connectedness to a higher source. The album was recorded in just a few days in the Magaliesberg Mountains, just outside of Johannesburg in 2016.
