Padkos CD Now Available!

Read Latest Review

Multiple SAMA award winning acoustic guitarist Tony Cox has turned his attentions to South African music with this his latest CD release titled Padkos; a word he uses to describe both food for the road and music as food for the soul.

‘Consistently brilliant’ - AudioVideo, Richard Haslop

A homage to great South African composers, Padkos is an album packed with some of the most well known and best-loved SA songs and melodies that go back to the beginning with Cox and are deeply woven into his and our collective fabric.

Among the tracks on the CD are, P J Power's, Jabulani (see vid) Bright Blue's, Weeping (see vid) the old traditional Sarie Marais, Impi by Juluka and Nico Carsten's Zambezi. Mixed in there are a few new original songs and instrumentals that have been inspired and pushed out by Tony’s life experiences these last few years.

Padkos is an exceptional and unique recording and is a clear and stunning display of skill and musical craftsmanship by one of our greatest South African guitarists.

In Concert at Die Ou Pastorie

Shot in an exquisite garden at Die Ou Pastorie, near Magaliesberg, this DVD shows one of our finest guitarists in full flight. Packed wall-wall with Cox’s inimitable guitaring and playing some of SA’s most beloved tunes. It is his sheer command of the realm of music via a wooden box with six strings, all sheathed in throw away humour that has made this home-brewed guitarist a much-loved icon of the acoustic guitar in SA and makes this DVD a must-have for any South African.

The first leg of my Padkos tour, taking in the Eastern Cape towns then across to Bloem and on to Jozi and Pretoria, was one of the best ever. I hadn’t been touring in some time and this time I had my wife and two daughters with me. This, combined with every show being sold-out made for a gorgeous tour.

What also took me by surprise was how strongly folks felt about the SA cover tunes. From tears to hearty thumps on the back, I had it all on the tour...could feel that love big time and I give thanks...

The second leg of the Padkos tour starts on the 22 May at the Catalina Theatre on Wilson’s Wharf, Durban. I’ll be playing Thur to Sun for 2-weeks at that great little theatre. I have many fond memories of shows there with Steve Newman, Syd Kitchen and Greg Georgiades...and now it’s time for Padkos in KZN, details will be posted soon...tc
