Growing up in uMgungundlovu, MAKHATHINI was surrounded by music as a child. His mother was a pianist and his father a guitarist- he was exposed to a range of music. He was part of the choir at school and would sing at church, and until he finished school, his voice was his instrument. It was only after High School that he started to study jazz piano. “I reached a point where my voice limited me from expressing the music, and that’s when I focused on the piano.”
NDUDUZO MAKHATHINI has several albums under his belt. He is also 2015’s Standard Bank Young Artists For Jazz, a UKZN graduate and 1st recipient of the British Academy Newton Advanced Fellowship Masters Scholarship. Currently enrolled in Stellenbosch for his masters in music. He is also a lecturer at University of Fort Hare
MAKHATHINI has played, toured and recorded with Busi Mhlongo, Zim Ngqawana, Feya Faku, Jimmy Dludlu, Herbie Tsaoeli and many others.
