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 that was released in November 2015. Groundbreaking techniques on the violin have seen him share stages at the same events with Viewe Farka Toure, Jocelyn Brown (Incognito) Rae Kwan (Wu Tang Clan),340 ml, Aking, The Blackjacks, Roger Lucy, David Kramer, Finley Quaye, Madala Kunene, Fruits and Veggies, Stelth Ulvang (The Lumineers) and many more. Hezron is also the violinist in 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 Chetty dishes an incredible amount of talent onto his symphonic platter.” Skye Mallac Texx and The City
“Hezron’s sensitive understanding of music.” Therese Owen Independent Newspapers.
“It’s always intriguing to stumble upon someone who is decidedly different.” ECR
