I first noticed Langa on Instagram singing Sunday Blues on UCT Live room and fell instantly in love with his voice.Langa Mavuso's music is influenced by the sounds of Frank Ocean, Kwabs, Solange, Donny Hathaway, Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye but also the sounds of his home South Africa.

Born and raised in Johannesburg, he was surrounded by music from an early age and he knew very early on that singing was what he was going to do in this life. I spoke with him about his upbringing, about the music scene in South Africa and his vision of providing musical education and workshops for all children in South Africa.

I asked Langa if I can share some of his songs with you, so today's epsiode is full of beautiful soul music!

Also I want to give a shoutout to my friend Melly who did today's intro! She's also a fan of Langa's, so she was the perfect fit. Say hi to her on Instagram. Thank you Melly!
