Man O Music Production
Manojkumar Khundo and Portia Khundo
A father and daughter team since 2005
I started out a music career in my teen days just performing as singer and drummer. I played and performed with many bands in diverse genre of music. I studied music for short while and did not pursue in the studies due to financial constraints. In 2002 my passion for music developed into greater love. I built an average 1 man band performance system with much struggle and continued performing for diverse functions and earned my way into a basic small studio that I now use as my home based recording and music development workstation. I believe in diversity and can handle many genres of music. It is my values such as passion, integrity, commitment and creativity that has brought me this far. My objective is to be unique producing quality music straight from the heart and soul trying my best to meet international standards.
Keep with the times and improve every step of the way.
I have a singing star and partner my daughter who is been with me in the music field since the age of 10years. In 2005 we released our first Album together called Chutney Choka from which songs are played over radio broadcast stations such as Lotus FM, Hindvani and LenzFM from time to time. She is one of the best in my opinion and share’s the precise values as I do. She steals many hearts with her fantastic voice meeting many of the international eastern and western artist’s standards.
Portia is very active in studio work with me and we both learn together as we carry out music composing and recording .
Joining us in the last 3 years is one of my younger brothers (Ammy Khunoo) who a fantastic voice and has shown great talent to be supported. He vocal’s for many of the songs that we perform on stage and on cd albums
We have performed throughout SA at various functions and venues for eastern and western music lovers. The data base of supporters grew by word of mouth and being a cost effective way of entertaining guest’s with Quality Music.
In 2007 whilst living in Natal we were chosen by a local movie producer, writer and director Marlene Ramlotchun from Verlum for all the musical songs and scores to a soon to be released local movie. In 2008 I relocated to Gauteng due to work and we communicated for the last 3 to 4 years throughout the fantastic movie production entitled ‘A STEM OF ROSE AND THORNS’. 5 of our compositions span the entire movie with scores of various styles as filler pieces and effects. The Theme song being 1 off my composition entitled ‘MAHIVE’. Another project is starting out that we have been invited to be part off with other arts and culture production teams.
My Latest Album to be released is entitled “DIL SE”. This album has 11 songs of diverse genre of music created by myself and 5 fully composed new songs. Featuring on this album is my daughter Portia Khundo and my younger brother Ammy Khunoo.
