Blanka Mazimela’s desire to pursue music became a dream come true when he met Ryan Murgatroyd, who not only became his mentor but his inspiration along with that of his father and his brother, to create his sound.
As Ryan’s protege, Blanka built up his skills and came into his own with his recent release of ‘Phezulu’ on Africa Gets Physical compilation and is set to feature an EP release on the label ‘Get Physical’ in the near future.
Blanka Mazimela’s unique sound is formed through his use of organic instrumentation and vocals transfused with an electronic element, and performs both live and DJ sets incorporating all these elements of sound.
Blanka is the content head for Soul Candi’s Institute of Music as well as the head of musical composition. He was previously the head lecturer at Soul Candi’s Institute of Music which has music production courses licensed out to over 30 Boston campuses all around South Africa.
Blanka collaborated with Crazy White Boy to create a song titled ‘Inthombi’ which is featured on their latest album. His music is making waves both locally and abroad , hard at work in studio with plans for a 2018 European Summer.
