Sheer Sound is a South African independent record company, now 15 years old, with a focus on quality music of all kinds. The company is a credible market leader and a respected player in the South African music industry.
Sheer Sound houses a wide spread of musical genres under one roof : Afrojazz, World music, Afropop and African flavoured House music. Our rich World & Jazz catalogue includes the likes of Oliver Mtukudzi, Zim Ngqwana, Winston Mankunku Ngozi, Bheki Mseleku, Louis Mhlanga and many more, as well as being dedicated to discovering, developing and revealing new talent.
Our Mission: A firm resolve of the company is to expose the music of Southern Africa to the world at large (not only South African music). The world’s ears have yet to hear much of this magic, with most African music that’s profiled coming from central and Western Africa.
