Itai Hakim

Itai Hakim is a musician and performance poet whose overall artistic output intends to reimagine and recreate the tradition of Black Folklore and story-telling in a contemporary setting, through song and performance. A unique guitarist whose musical output does not fit comfortably into any genre, he can best be described as folk-soul. His performances are curated by a novel voice with an ethereal quality sung in his native Tshivenda and Xitsonga. Itai Hakim’s hybrid of Afro-blues and Indie Jazz expressed through the unique plucking style of traditional folk masters create a soundscape which feels both old and new at the same time.
