About Sean Mackenzie

Multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Sean Mackenzie is an eccentric wizard on a worldwide journey through music. His explorations into less conventional, indigenous sounds have seen him specialize in piano, the exquisite thumb piano (Kalimba) of Africa, and the beautiful Brazilian instruments of berimbau and pandeiro. Sean has composed and produced music for Nikatsu Film Studios in Japan, as well as his own albums, Talking to Myselves, Off 2 C the Planet and his latest album Brasil. He has been involved in intensive workshops in Holland and Brazil. Sean tours with Lulo Reinhardt & is endorsed by Korg.

Since graduating from Queensland Conservatorium of Music in 1987 he has travelled widely composing, performing and teaching. With influences from all corners of the world, Sean’s music travels from one hemisphere to another and back again, connecting with people from around the world and exploring their voices.
