“Troubled” is the lead single created by Botswana guitar maestro Solly Sebotso and Botswana-born, Joburg-based music new-find, Mpho Sebina, and Danish star and producer, J Spliff.

Fusing Botswana’s four string Guitar (a local traditional folk music) and Danish Electronic Dance Music  in a cool, contemporary style, the song was inspired by the need to drive open conversations among creative people around mental health.

Respectively, it forms part of the ‘Heartstrings & Heartbeats‘ campaign, a global public engagement project that seeks to create knowledge exchange between scientists in Botswana and Denmark, including collaborations on projects emerging from explorations of mental health issues affecting creative people.
