Pops Mohamed (born Ismail Mohamed-Jan) is a South African t, jazz musician and producer.
Subtitled From New York To Joburg, it was recorded in New York and featured local musicians, such as Valerie Naranjo (vibraphonist, percussionist, ex-Caribali), along with South African players and Mohamed himself playing piano, penny whistle, mbira and a whole range of percussion instruments. The album successfully melded traditional styles with the South African jazz sound made internationally popular by artists such as Abdullah Ibrahim and the African Jazz Pioneers.
Five decades after he first picked up his home-made box guitar, he is as active as ever; last year saw the release of his 37th album, 'African Classics' – contrapuntally, he's also been jamming all over the place with those kids of the Electric, The Kwani Experience. I think the chemistry between us is there – we think alike and we both believe in (FSOJ) the future sound of Johannesburg or South Africa as a whole.
