Pianist, rapper and producer Mrisi is a multifaceted artist with a varied musical background, by which the development of his sound has sought to unify these areas of influence.
This has included a range of sounds from traditional South African music to Jazz piano and grass roots Hip Hop. Over the years, this has enabled him to perform at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, The Brighton Fringe Festival, Sofar Sounds and all over the UK and in South Africa, supporting the likes of Omar, Prince Fatty, Rizzle Kicks and along side working with the likes of Rag N Bone Man.
His current performances display his skill on the piano and his challenging, thoughtful yet often witty lyricism. His performance includes two backing singers who not only introduce a more soulful element, but their three part harmonies grace the unique performance with an almost choral feel.
Mrisi is one to watch with his up and coming project Mamela which has recently received direct support on Rag’n’Bone Man’s Facebook artist page.
