Amathongo

Amathongo is a Cape Town based World Music project which mixes traditional African styles with jazz and a great variety of other music genres.

Madosini plays musical bows in the Xhosa tradition, Hilton Schilder plays keyboards, Johnny Blundell guitar and Pedro Espi-Sanchis the Lekgodilo flute. Together as "MadoJazz" they extend traditional African music into the realm of Jazz.
MadoJazz is an African and Jazz musical fusion ensemble. We take Madosini's songs and a few other musical traditions and extend them into the realm of Jazz. Madosini plays the Uhadi and Mhube musical bows and Pedro plays the Ixilongo flute. These are instruments that were created some 70 000 years ago and speak the same old language.
