Less than 3 months after his accident, he was back on stage in his wheelchair with his deep, rich, bass voice.
In this acoustic show, Mathys will pay tribute to masters such as Cat Stevens, Leonard Cohen and Neil Diamond and introduce the audience to old and new Afrikaans music. He will also perform music from his latest CD, which helps to tell his story.
