In February 2018, acclaimed South African Folk Roots guitarist will join forces with Iranian, oud virtuoso, Yasamin Shahhosseini for a South African tour. Nibs says, I never been as excited about a collaboration since Yasamin and I have decided to work together. She is so rooted in her deep Persian tradition, but yet at the same time she wants to fuse her influences with my Southern African and global folk and world styles. Living in different continents, we have already started the creative process, by sending each other ideas. This has really stretched me by leaps and bounds and I truly believe something special is going to come out of this.â€ Nibs and Yasamin plan to record an album on this tour in and between many shows on the road.
Although we have not physically met each other, we have been sending each other musical ideas, which I truly believe has the recipe for an incredible collaboration. It will be the meeting of two vastly different cultures coming together with a message of hope and peace through the music. Just trying to learn a new musical language to fit in with my South African soundscape has really made me shift gears. I am almost sure, that this will all end up on a new album!!!!
