Having started writing music at the age of 12 and scored the first sketches of Rock/Classical fusion concerto, toccata and fugue and other pieces all by the age of 15, there’s no questioning that Mustafa Khetty is musically gifted.
A composer and song writer with little musical background, his musical journey was born out of the mix of cultures he was exposed to in his youth. Born in Sri Lanka and having lived in the UK, Middle East and Far East, these experiences have contributed to Mustafa’s rich and diverse palette of musical influence.
His debut musical releaseis Requiem for New Zealand, originally inspired by the tragic events in Christchurch, New Zealand on 15th March 2019, when a terrorist attack left 51 innocent people murdered and 49 injured. Requiem for New Zealand is dedicated to victims of hate crime around the world.

His journey began early exposed to Indian classical music and later on western classical, progressive rock and other genres. By the end of 2017, it was a full circle return to his first passion after nearly 35 years as an investor and IT entrepreneur.
His music style ranges across different genres and fusion of both western and eastern styles and instruments merging soundscapes forming a tapestry of moods, emotions, rhythmic patterns and harmonic layers. Often described as world music, his creative spirit is free from rules, boundaries and parameters. A bohemian at heart, his music is a reflection of his travels, experiences and sonic expressions.
