He is now a much sought after musician for events and concerts by his own community and in the world music scene here in SA.

Unpredictable & delightful, Abraska creates a unique musical blend that comes from the sound of travel and the merging of different cultures, rhythms & people. Incorporating horns, guitar, bass and drums, Abraska’s style ranges from lyrical Caribbean dance tunes to soaring narrative ballads bedded deep in New Orleans gospel brass and harmonium music with crystal vocals sparkling above. Drawing on a whole world of inspiration they create a new sound pulsing with vibrancy and vitality.
Wrapping their lyrics in global beats Abraska create something new, shimmering with luscious, tuneful appeal.
