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.

TONY COX – PADKOS TOUR 2014 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.
PADKOS TOUR 2014...
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
