“I want people to experience liberty in abundance through my music.” says Gumede, “I am happy to be coming to Hammarsdale to present my music to the people of the soil. I will bring my own composed music and also some covers. Our band aims to spread freedom through music, so I would like the audience to experience this freedom with me.”
Having trained at KCAP Arts Centre in KwaMashu as well as at BAT Centre and exploring his passion for gospel, pop and jazz music throughout the past years, the Durban-based bass player Gumede has already shared stages with big names such as Jimmy Dludlu, Lira, the late Bra Hugh Masekela, Caiphus Semenya, Swazi Dlamini, Judith Sephuma, S’fiso Ncwane and many more.
