Album launch

Gabriel Espi is launching his full-length debut album Many Moons on Thursday May 18 at the Commons in Muizenberg, at 7pm. The album, which will be released on all digital platforms on the same day, is described as “a kaleidoscopic blend of instrumental textures, genres, feelings and rhythms”. The album was a collaborative project, with 13 musicians involved. The line-up for the launch will bring the album’s arrangements to life, with a horn section consisting of Keegan Steenkamp and Matthew Rightford (trumpet and saxophone), flashes of flute from Mulalo Mphaphuli, and guest vocal appearances from singers Mishka Reddy and Nduduzo Mkhize. This will all be underscored by a rhythm section consisting of Keno Carelse on drums, Tiana Amari on bass and Gabriel Espi on guitar. Tickets cost R120 through Quicket.
