THE PASS­ING OF LEG­ENDS

DRUM - - Ed's Note -

South Africa has been deeply sad­dened by the pass­ing of jazz mae­stros Johnny Mekoa and Ray Phiri. Ray Phiri was a guitar marvel. I en­joyed his pow­er­ful, au­then­tic voice and his danc­ing. We’ve also lost pro­lific trum­peter Johnny Mekoa. We shall trea­sure his songs. Bra Johnny Mekoa and Ray Phiri’s con­tri­bu­tions to the mu­sic in­dus­try will al­ways be cher­ished. May their souls rest in peace. AMOS TEBEILA, MHLUZI
