The Ghost of Freddie Cesar - Troy Kingi and The Clutch

Troy Kingi 570 x 344 px JPEG

The Ghost of Freddie Cesar is the fourth instalment in multi-award-winning musician/actor Troy Kingi’s aspirational 10 10 10 Series, to release 10 albums in 10 genres in 10 years. Brought to life by the latest iteration of his band, Troy Kingi & The Clutch, this record is Troy’s most personal work to date.  This album is inspired by memories of Troy’s father who disappeared fifteen years ago along with the music and stories of Freddie Cesar – an exceptional yet relatively unknown African-American funk musician.  Join Troy as he re-interprets the 70s as a funk-filled landscape, recreating a past that no longer exists through this dedication to both his father and Freddie Cesar.

Troy is also this year’s recipient of the Mātairangi Mahi Toi Māori Artist in Residence and will spend four months at Government House recording his fifth album, A 75+ Year Trip to Perpetual Sleep.
