Kwela Boy is an expressive composition that captures the lively spirit of South African street music in its rawest form. The piece presents a young boy playing the pennywhistle, a signature instrument in Kwela, a genre that melds traditional African rhythms with jazz and swing. The painting captures the boy during a performance, his face a picture of concentrated joy.

Tretchikoff’s vibrant colours and bold brush strokes convey the pulsating energy of the Kwela music, making the scene feel alive and dynamic. Kwela Boy is a tribute to the power of music and the unyielding spirit and rhythm of the young performer.
