CH2, the multi-international award-winning duo from South Africa, keeps going from strength to strength with their latest HIT album STARSTRUCK, the duo’s 12th album to date. This album is indeed a STARSTRUCK affair…
Featuring the genius that is Michael Nomad Ripoll on guitar. His credits include Rodney Jerkins, David Foster, Walter A., Tommy Simms, Bernie Herms, Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Justin Bieber, Colbie Caillat, Josh Groban, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Toby Mac, and Leslie Odom Jr. In his career he’s also been fortunate enough to work with iconic composers such as, Danny Elfman (Men in Black 3), John Powell (Ferdinand, Happy Feet 1 & 2, Mr. & Mrs. Smith), and A.R. Rahman.
Secondly we have the Grammy winning flautist Wouter Kellerman joining CH2 on a STUNNING rendition of Sting’s “Shape of my Heart”. A true honour for us!
Then the wunderkind Marcin Patrzalek from Poland and winner of the legendary Jon Gomm world acoustic guitar competition, joins CH2 on Asturias. An iconic Classical-Spanish composition by Isaac Albeniz, here reborn into a stunning cross-over track.
Butera Knowless needs no introduction in the African Pop music scene! Hailing from Rwanda this queen of Africa graces us with her soothing tones and flawless beauty also singing in her native tongue Kinyarwanda.
