Hennie Bekker is an award winning, multi-platinum selling musician whose eclectic career spans decades, continents, generations and genres. Best known for his New Age sound on the SolitudesTM, Kaleidoscope and Tranquility album series, he was also a creative force behind BKS, one of Canadaís most successful techno/dance bands.
Bekker was raised in Mufulira, a Zambian copper mining town 10 miles south of the Congo border.
In 1987, Bekker emigrated to Canada. He was eventually led to SolitudesTM, where he composed ambient melodies to compliment Dan Gibsonís nature sounds, and the two collaborated on the first fourteen Exploring Nature With Music albums, a highly successful series that has sold gold, platinum, double platinum and triple platinum volumes.
