Lendel brings his special sense of musical style to Suncoast’s Sunday Beat!
Lendel Moonsamy – who reached the Top 4 of SA Idols in 2009, is set to perform at SUNCOAST’S Sunday Beat on Sunday 28 February at 14h00.
Describing his musical style as “rock at the base with blues and soul influences with a little bit of alternate on the top” Lendel mentions that making the Top Four of Idols “was definitely one of my prouder achievements musically. Performing with international gospel artist – Israel Houghton – is another.”
Hailing from Tongaat, on the North Coast, the 30 year old artist gets inspiration “from everyday living” when writing his music. “Be it tragedy, heartbreak or happiness; a crowded street or walking through an empty mall.”
His favourite musicians are “Daughtry, Audioslave, Phil Collins, Mumford & Sons, Israel Houghton, MW Smith…and the list goes on”
Choosing a favourite instrument “is like asking me to choose my favourite child! It would have to be the drums – even though I don’t play them –but I love them. Then again I love guitar and bass just as much and I do play those!”
Currently juggling being a musical director in the ministry with singing gigs and MC-appearances, “I hope to keep making music in the hope that I can influence people positively.”
A dream for the future? “I would love to perform at the SAMA’s and obviously at the Grammys too someday – right after receiving my award!” he adds, laughing.
For now though, he will be entertaining the Sunday Beat crowds at SUNCOAST. The music starts at 14h00. Don’t miss him!
