Greeting the world, today I had the opportunity to sit down with the incredibly talented Lerato Lishaba, and chat with him about his music, his experience as a session musician, the legacy that the COVID-19 pandemic has left on local musicians, and our mutual love of backyard sessions and vinyls. Lerato is a vibrant, passionate artist whose music is a unique blend of classic and contemporary sounds. He shared with me the importance of developing relationships with local musicians and the joy of playing together in the same room. Lerato also discussed how the pandemic has impacted local musicians, from cancelled gigs to the necessity of creating new revenue streams. We discussed the importance of strengthening industry ties and the joy of creating together in new ways, such as outdoor sessions and the resurgence of vinyls. All in all, it was a great conversation with a truly talented musician that I will cherish for a long time to come.
