My Client: Moreira Chonguica
Starting at my first PR consultancy Moreira has become to be one great musician and client.
Moreira Chonguica is a celebrated Cape Town based musician, originally from Mozambique. Moreira relocated to Cape Town to further his music studies where he graduated with a degree in in Jazz Performance and an Honours degree in Ethnomusicology at the South African College of Music (University of Cape Town) in 2000. Since his move to Cape Town, Moreira has established an impressive list of credits to his name.
2010 started off on a high note for Moreira, as his latest album ’The Moreira Project Volume 2 - Citizen of the World’, received the An’R (artist, repertoire and international licensing Magazine) Award of Excellence.
Its amazing that such talent is well received in South Africa, if one thinks of how in the past music was very stereotypical, everyone listened to the same music. For some reason, slowly but surely the youth are getting more involved in different type of music like jazz and classical which is great for exposure for Moreira and other artists in this field.
