An eccentric wizard on a worldwide journey through music. Skill in improvisation and exploration into less conventional, indigenous sounds have seen Sean Mackenzie specialise in piano, the exquisite thumb piano (Kalimba) of Africa, and the beautiful Brazilian berimbau. His unique style is inspired by the music of Brazil, Latin Americas, Africa, Asia and the European Gypsies.
He is without doubt a master musician.
Mackenzie is a master storyteller. Every piano solo is a deftly shaped little narrative that unfolds compellingly from one note to the next.
John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald.
Mackenzie is so dazzling, he rivals Lulo for TKO performance. The constantly competitive, good-natured playoff, between the two, is nothing short of scintillating; a thrill a minute, as they push themselves and each other into new territory and to ever more dizzying new heights.
