Mustafa Khetty is a composer and song writer born in Sri Lanka and having lived in Ireland, UK, Middle East and Far East, each experience contributing to a rich and diverse palette of musical influence. His musical journey began early, Mustafa being exposed to Indian classical music and later on western classical, progressive rock and other genres.
He started writing music at age 12 and scored the first sketches of a Rock/classical fusion concerto, toccata and fugue and other pieces by 15. End of 2017, it was a full-circle return to his first passion after nearly 35 years as an investor and IT entrepreneur. His music style ranges across different genres and fusion of both western and eastern styles and instruments merging soundscapes forming a tapestry of moods, emotions, rhythmic patterns and harmonic layers.
He takes his first steps on his musical endeavour with a song that is powerful and hard-hitting. The track is thematically inspired by the Christchurch massacre that took place in New Zealand in 2019. The violent act of right-wing terrorism took the lives of 51 people in the Al Noor Mosque in Christchurch.
