Sylvestre Kabassidi is a humble soul who draws his inspiration from a source that very few songwriters have the courage to access and explore. He is a poet that speaks effortlessly of frailty, courage love and hope and his music defies the barriers of learned language. Whether he sings in French, Lari or English, he has the ability to convey his message and be understood, not on a cerebral level but in an emotional sanctuary where it resonates more deeply.
His rich warm voice is wrapped in a delicate veil of guitar to create soothing sounds for world weary souls. To spend a few minutes in his audience has the same effect as an hour-long session of meditation with a guru.
I became acquainted with this fine local artist a few months back when, after hearing some serious guitar rhythms being played not far from my front door in Tamboerskloof, I decided to find out where it was all coming from. After meeting Sylvestre it wasn’t long before he roped me in to attend one of his performances – Last years Rocking The Daisies 10′ and with that I had discovered a very humbling artist whose soul, really did do justice to the genre of ‘music for the heart’.
