Spine Surgeon turned musician.

Every artist dreams of penning a break-through track – one that opens all the doors. Renowned singer and songwriter Tommy Maribana better known as Dr. Tom, recently spilled the beans on his inspiration behind creating African-pop music.

Dr. Tom who is also a medical practitioner working as an orthopedic and spine surgeon in Pretoria, vividly recalls the day music entered his life. His passion for music stems from his appreciation of instruments and having a dedicated YouTube channel where he reviews guitars, it was only inevitable that at some point Dr Tom would venture out and record his original music.

Born and raised in Venda, Limpopo Tommy Mariba has always been fond of instruments and specifically playing the guitar, he would form a new group called ‘Magic Strings’ where his passion for music was unleashed. When asked about the formation of his group Dr. Tom alluded to the ten pieces of music that I had planned to record in the December holidays of 2022, I was able to get Mulalo Mukwevho who produced the music, Blessing Mudzanini who played the guitar and Hangwi Netshifhefhe who sang all the songs. That is how Magic Strings was formed. Part of Dr Tom’s success lies with his ability to connect with listeners.

‘After multiple phenomenal recording sessions at Burning Shak Studios in Venda we completed the project which we named ‘One Night In Vegas’ the debut single being Khanyisile Come Home’ which is out today’ Dr Tom added.

Khanyisile Come Home the debut single is fresh-new sound African-pop music that illustrates and showcases that Magic Strings is here to stay. Their sound is clear, clean and extremely unique from the music people listen to.

The hard work and dedication of Magic Strings have seen the group work hard to complete the album in record time and even move on to recording the second album before releasing their debut album, a task many musicians fail to achieve.

‘Khanyisile Come Home is an incredible love song of a man begging his lover to come back home, it’s very catchy and will certainly have people moving, it is certainly one of my personal favorites’’ Dr. Tom added.

The success of his recent album was the continuation of his future list of achievements. Magic Strings will also be hosting a listening session for their new single and forthcoming album at The Breadbox Studios in Midrand on its release day.

It is without a doubt that Magic Strings is on the rise and will be releasing music regularly for their supporters.
