The flute wizard has proved to be one of South Africa’s foremost musicians since launching his debut album ‘Colour’ in 2008. In 2010 he performed at the FIFA World Cup Closing Ceremony to a global television audience of 700-million people, and in 2015 Kellerman won a Grammy® Award for his collaborative album ‘Winds of Samsara’.
Lady Zamar (Yamikani Janet Mwafulirwa), who hails from Gauteng, celebrated having the most streamed South African song on Spotify last year – her song, ‘Collide’. She is also an academic, entrepreneur and talk show host.
The acoustic cover was mixed and mastered by Bill Hare in California, USA.
