If you are looking to be infatuated with soulful sounds mixed with a hint of jazz, house, pop, gospel and hip-hop then this is the album for you.
Muzart’s self-entitled album has not only resurrected my hope in South African music, but my hope in timeless music that resonates with people from all generations.
With a rich sound, the new 5 piece band which was formed in 2009 through the power of social networking consists of members from all over Gauteng, Sol “Stringer” Mosetle, Victor “Vic” Chauke, Rorisang “Rori” Thandekiso, Jabu Junior Kanyile and Tshegofatso “Tazzy” Lehutso fused their musical talents and dominated the musical scene with their smashing hit, “Jukebox” which is a mellow club song, that focuses on layers of musical instruments that come together to produce one beautiful sound See the video on: [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YpQttkoonM]
Despite being a young, upbeat and fresh group they have the ability to incorporate an old school atmosphere or texture to their sound which unites different age groups and with Rori’s soulful, sweet voice and the guys’ basses it adds great flair to the debut album.

The twelve track album is not to be tossed aside because it’s easily adaptable for clubs and road trips. The first track on the album is a true reflection of the above statement; Soundwaves is an up-tempo dance song with touches of jazz, which exhibits the great musical instruments of the album whilst also keeping the driver that’s driving awake and the clubber that is dancing on the dance floor.
The second song on the album Oh yeah has a South African feel to it. It’s lively and remains in your head way after the tune has been turned off. It remains one of an anthem song that one always sings wherever they are.
As the album incorporates not only age, but beliefs as well track number 6 on the album, Great I Am is a gospel jazz-loving song. The group opted to incorporate their Christianity and not only solely offer a secular album. It’s not entirely focused on lyrics which is great because the song would’ve lost its instrumental jazziness.
If you want your perception of soul, jazzy music to be changed then you have to listen to this album See [http://www.soulcandi.co.za/index.php/muzart.html#.UmRqNFPsXP0]. If their first single is like this, then I am highly anticipating their second one. All I am waiting for is a live performance so that I can witness their creative energy on stage.
