Mac McKenzie has always pushed the boundaries of Goema, the rhythmic groove at the heart of Cape Town’s carnival culture. During the 80s, he injected defiance into the idiom with The Genuines, creating lightning-speed Rock arrangements and the resistance anthem “Struggle.” In 2002, Mac guided Goema into a more refined arena with The Goema Captains of Cape Town, cloaking the Cape vibe in Cool Jazz.
Now Mac’s back, with an orchestra to boot, steering Goema into Classical territory.
