Concord Nkabinde “Live in Joburg, South Africa” DVD Release

2011-11-25 00:00

It is not often that one gets to experience a performer’s ‘first ever’ appearance as a solo artist. In 2005 Concord Nkabinde defied advice and went on to record and film his very first performance as a bandleader.

It has been 8 years now since the release of his successful debut CD “The Time, The Season” (2003), which was followed by his second release “This Is My World” (2007). Nkabinde therefore felt that now was the perfect time and season to take us back to where his world as a solo artist began.

“For my first concert ever to be sold out and having to turn people away at the door, was truly a humbling experience,” said Nkabinde.

This Live DVD will take you through ideas and thoughts that propel Nkabinde to write the kind of music that has been embraced by people from all walks of life, locally and internationally. It also includes interviews by media experts as well as fellow musicians who have been observing Nkabinde’s musical journey over the years, such as HHP, Themba Mkhize, Tamara Dey and others.

This DVD offering is supplemented with additional footage that includes a separate live concert, music videos and a photographic gallery.

Attention paid to the crafting of the music itself is equally matched by the attention given to the artwork design of the DVD Menu and packaging.

Amongst the amazing musicians that performed with Concord on this DVD are, guitar Maestro Louis Mhlanga and singer Extraordinaire Gloria Bosman. Concord’s appreciation and respect for fellow musicians is apparent and captured in the performances and in his interview on the DVD.

This release marks an important point in Concord’s musical career as he looks back in order to embrace the future of music with it’s rapid and digital changes, aspects he is engaging with curiously and confidently.
