About Don Vino
New generation of musicians has grown up. It is time to introduce Don Vino Prins aka Don Vino and this year he celebrates 20 years in music. He is best known for his Saxy Vibes show.
Don grew up in an area called Epping Forest, a part of Elsies River, Cape Town. His first instrument was the banjo, then he switched to the trumpet before he moved to saxophone at the age of 15. As a musician, Don has toured Europe, Dubai, Australia and the United States playing with the Grammy Award winners, Kirk Whalum and Lady Smith Black Mambazo, Jonathan Butler and Gerald Veasley.
Don Vino Music
In August 2018 he released his debut album All The Way. The first track of the album from Elsies to the World has autobiographical traits with the introductory words. The sax fueled tune works with syncopated waves merging South African and jazz fusion elements.
To The Cape Doctor delivers local color, the typical sound and rhythm of South Africa. In between a pinch of jazz develops before the folkloristic element regains the upper hand. They Were Here features vocal legend Vicky Sampson, famous by her national anthem African Dream. The song comes along mysteriously, while the saxophone adds a melancholic note.
Rarely is a plant chosen as the motif for a piece, Don Vino makes an exception with Little Dandelion. The piece receives a romantic attitude through soprano saxophone and acoustic guitar. Nelly shines with the South African lightness that moves transparently through rhythm and melody.
All The Way comes edgier with a bass run and organ treat before the sax takes the melody in focus. The title song reminds of the early music of Osibisa. Don Vino has the perfect answer for the old and eternal question Happiness is.... This outburst of joy can only be defined in music.
The final tune Worried features singer Tye Platinum, a vocalist from Cape Town, who already showed his talent in the show The Voice South Africa. The ballad is also presented in a video on YouTube.
Don Vino Album
Don Vino's album All The Way showcases a colorful mix of original music with the typical South African flavor that has lost none of its attractiveness.
