A childhood in the extremes of Southern Africa’s landscapes absorbing indigenous sounds and immersing himself in the rural rhythms of the rural Limpopo Province, Shen has a definate ethnic blend to his music. After a degree in Jazz music, and with a love for house and pop music, ShenFM is a fusion of all of the above, creating a global commercial yet ‘world music’ feel to his compositions.

 

“I love you. You know who you are. You know you are a great singer.” - Mnati, SA Pop Idols Judge, 2012

 

ShenFM places their music on a beach at sunset. Its an eclectic mix of beats, uptempo yet still peaceful, dance-able but not overpowering.
