Like his hometown of Cape Town, Robin Auld’s music exists somewhere between the 1st and the 3rd world. The only constant is that the song comes first. Born to Scottish parents in Zambia, his life has alternated between Southern Africa and Britain, a state of constant movement reflected in his musical search. In his own words: “ My personal journey as a songwriter is make an equation that uses everything I've heard and loved. A musical world that links Bizet to Burt Bacharach to Philip Tabane to Lionel Bart to Steve Reich to The Soul Brothers to the Beatles to Joni Mitchell. It's a tall order, but it keeps me out of trouble."
