Having spent his career split variously across both the savagery of Wall Street and the high stakes of the technology sector, polymath Mustafa Khetty is finally focusing on the emotional rock that has stayed with him throughout his life – music. Born in Sri Lanka but having lived in Ireland, US, Middle and Far East and the UK, Mustafa grew up listening to classic rock like Led Zeppelin and prog giants like Yes, music he has often returned to to escape the stresses of his business life but also to inspire his own musical aspirations.
Ironically, it is another field of music entirely in which he looking looking to make his first steps, with a classical eulogy to the victims of 2019’s appalling terrorist attack on the people of Christchurch, New Zealand. With a real deftness of touch, it certainly pulls on the heart-strings and is a fitting tribute to those who have fallen as the result of random acts of violent and terror. This is no one-off project though, with an equally expansive, multi-layered project…or perhaps more precisely ‘prog-ject’ due for release in 2020.
