A conversation with Langa Mavuso

Langa has broken new ground for South Africa’s musical masculinities. Presently in the limelight as Deezer’s Next Artist of 2020, Langa is set to complete the year recounting the forces that propelled him skyward from the very first note -- showing us a man brimming with love, power, purpose and pain in a seminal debut album set for a mid-year release.
Graduating from the National School of Arts where he studied Dramatic Arts for three years and Contemporary Music for his final two years, Langa went on to refine his technique and vocal health by studying a year in formal classical singing and training at Rhodes University in 2013. In 2014 he enrolled at the University of Cape Town's South African College of Music to study Jazz Performance under the guidance of renowned artist and vocal teacher Amanda Tiffin.
