Afro-Saxon minstrel poet, guitarist and singer song-fighter SYD KITCHEN has been a dynamic, innovative contributor to the SA musical landscape since the ‘70’s. The Durban based artist’s often biting lyrics and crafty guitar work have earned him a dedicated following at Festivals and Clubs throughout SA; be that as a solo performer, with Steve Newman, Tony Cox and Greg Georgiades in the AQUARIAN QUARTET, or with Madala Kunene in BAFO BAFO. He is the only artist to have performed at every Splashy Fen Festival since its inception in 1990.
With several critically acclaimed albums behind him and three new different project albums underway, SYD KITCHEN remains as positively forward thinking and energetic as ever. Visit www.sydkitchen.com and www.myspace.com/sydkitchensa for a cultural rinse and tuck.
