ERNIE WINS KORA (article first published : 2001-11-18)

Born and bred in Wentworth, Durban, Ernie Smith began playing the guitar at the age of 13. He also sang for the church choir but eventually began to search for his own style.

Ernie Smith, now well-known for his blend of African jazz, R&B and gospel, released his 13-track album Child of the Light earlier this year. A committed Christian, he writes and produces his own music.

At the recent Kora Awards held at Sun City, Ernie Smith won the award for best promising male artist. He will perform at the Durban Jazz Festival at the Point Waterfront from December 15 to 16.
