Skinny Pelembe is forging his own path.
Born in Johannesburg, growing up in Doncaster, his multi-dimensional approach to music pulls together a broad mosaic of influences.
Set to hit the road later in the month, Skinny's long and winding journey is picking up pace, resulting in some incredible, wholly distinctive music.
Take new song 'Live From The High As A Kite'. The undulating percussive tick ripples through the song, with Skinny Pelembe's supple vocal interweaving with Sonia Bernardo.
It's the fusion of different hues and tones that makes the song so intriguing, that masculine/feminine dynamic working to break down the barriers.
The mid-point explosion is worth looking out for, the searing guitar line rupturing the track, allowing fresh ideas to spill forth.
Tune in now.
