More Info on the band:
In a world where superficial and real are often crossed, a deep burden to create something new was conceptualized by Hezron Chetty and The ZugZwang.
Their choice of instrumentation is not commonly associated with a trio. The band is led by violin, driven by drums and bass and backed by the keyboard to add a rich undertone commonly associated with genres like psychedelic, rock, folk and classical.
In late 2015, violinist Hezron Chetty launched the project under his name and was later joined by CJ Duckitt (bass/synth) , Jeanré Leo (drums) and Giorgio Laporta (guitar). The band toured South Africa, performing extensively and supporting artists like Dan Patlansky, Albert Frost and Arno Carstens. They have performed at every major festival in South Africa and received critical acclaim for their album The Fallacy of Composition. In Early 2017 they were invited to join the line up for Africa Day where they opened for Jaco Pastorius and Joe Zawinul's drummer, Paco Sery.
Hezron Chetty & The ZugZwang is the re-birth of the project under a different name. ‘Zugzwang’ means a compulsion to move and the band’s music moves its audience by aligning emotion, heart and soul.
The band is constantly performing and working on new material. They are currently in studio working on their next album, which is set for release in February 2018.
