Nur Felix is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Athlone, Cape Town. Over the last ten years, Nur has been sharing his message of peace promotion in theatres, at music festivals, and at community upliftment events across South Africa. Singing and composing from the heart, Nur‘s upbeat acoustic sound encourages the audience that ‘We Are All We Need’. Happiness is not found in material things, but in the pursuit of dreams, the search for deeper meaning, love, and breaking down the barriers against authentic life expression.
There is a tad of activism in his songs, room for emotional processing through love and heartache, all carried by unique guitar riffs and melodies that are bound to uplift your soul. Nur‘s music and music videos have been featured on TV, in documentaries, and on the radio. His song ‘Peace Date’ (co-written with Nancy Beaudette) was nominated for the International Peace Song awards in Los Angeles in 2018.
Nur Felix is an inspiration for a new wave of singer-songwriters in Cape Town. The concert included performances by highly accomplished local musicians such as Violinist Rayelle Goodman (CT Philharmonic Orchestra), Backing vocalist Mpumi Sizani (backing vocalist for Judith Sephuma), Bass player Josh Hawks (ex Freshly Ground), Backing Vocalist Ruby Paton (Featured on the album), Saxophonist Gareth Harvey, Keyboardist Desmond Blake, and Drummer Byron Asher. The evening was a wondrous collection of eclectic music that expresses a sense of hope for a better world.
