Glo-sponsored African Voices Changemakers highlights music acts        

Glo

This week’s edition of the Glo-sponsored African Voices Changemakers is shining the light on two popular South African music acts.

 

The duo, Wouter Kellerman, a renowned flutist, and Abel Selaocoe, a popular and hugely successful cellist, reel out the trajectory of their experience and success in their classical style of music.

 

These two and a horde of South African musicians are elevating the classical genre across the continent. Wouter Kellerman, a two-time Grammy-winning flutist, blends his contemporary sound with a traditional style, while Abel Selaocoe, a cellist with unique improvisational skill, is using classical music to inspire the next generation of performers.

 

Kellerman, 62, is a 2022 Grammy Award-winning South African flutist and composer. He has also won as many as eight South African Music Awards, and had worked with the Soweto Gospel Choir on Symphonic Soweto – A Tribute to Nelson Mandela.

 

On his part, Cellist Abel Selaocoe is redefining the parameters of the cello music instrument. “He moves seamlessly across a plethora of genres and styles, from collaborations with world musicians and beatboxers, to concerto performances and solo classical recitals”.
