Life for a traveling musician can be fun,sad and sometimes just plain weird! This show is a look into the life of a traveling musician and the interesting people I have met from my travels around the world.Over the past decade I have traveled around Europe, India and Africa immersing myself in cultures and learning from all these creative musicians. I have wrote it all down and now finally I am will be sharing these stories at a special show.

Hezron Chetty is a violinist and songwriter from Cape Town, South Africa. Hezron performs the violin through a loop station. His style is fresh and his progressive approach to instrumental music has captured the attention of the music scene – local and abroad.

`The Fallacy of Composition’ is Hezron’s studio album released in November 2015. Groundbreaking techniques on the violin have seen him share events with Viewe Farka Toure, Jocelyn Brown (Incognito) Raekwon (Wu Tang Clan),340 ml, Aking, The Blackjacks, Roger Lucey, David Kramer, Finley Quaye, Madala Kunene, Fruits and Veggies, Stelth Ulvang (The Lumineers), Just Jinger. Hezron is also the violinist for Arno Carstens Big Band. 

“Psychedelic, eclectic sounds surround the senses and momentarily the crowd forgets where they are and sit patiently in Hezron’s palm begging for another song.” Mahala  

Hezron’s genre can be described as a New Age, thought provoking take on Instrumental music. With influences coming from some of the great instrumentalists of our time, namely Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Jimmy Page, Jimmy Hendrix ,Tommy Emmanuel, Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt. Hezron loops string arrangements live, and places melodies and solos on top of them. At times the listener will believe there is a full string quartet on stage.  “Hezron’s sensitive understanding of music.” Therese Owen Independent Newspapers.  ‘Chetty, who plays his intriguing post-modern compositions through a loop station, holds a unique position in our local music scene’ Skye Mallac- Texx and The City
