Rolling Wood


Nibs van der Spuy is returning to the Cape, after a successful Spring tour in Italy. This will be the second leg of his, 'Natalia' national tour and his first solo release in 5 years. 'Natalia' was recorded by world reknowned producer, Mark Tucker (Portishead/PJ Harvey), bringing together strong themes and images of Kwazulu and introducing new and exciting soundscapes to the music. He played at Rolling Wood early in 2016 with Amber Rubarth to rapturous applause. The roof lifted I tell you. Anyway since I first saw him in Grahamstown many years ago I have been biased. He is a genius of melody and song.

Excellent! A voice full of wonder and humility of the songs it sings.” (ROLLING STONE) **** August 2013

"A discovery! Classical touches, Zulu melodies and his thrilling airy voice" (LE MONDE, FRANCE)

"Beautifully weighted and filigreed acoustic playing" (UNCUT)

"The most sensitive and breathy songs on the continent with classy, gently sturdy guitar work" (GUARDIAN UK)

"Nibs is a foremost proponent of the fine weave of cultural sounds that are this country" (SUNDAY TIMES, 5 STARS)

Nibs is a truly original and consummate talent and one of the best representations of truly original South African music.”

“The mark of any half decent guitarist is the ability to become one with the instrument. Nibs is that kind of guitar player where he becomes the guitar.”-Music Review SA

Nibs is probably one of South Africa’s most underrated musicians of extraordinary talent.” AVSA (South Africa’s leading audio visual magazine
