Jitsvinger aka Quintin Goliath is one of South Africa’s best known Afrikaans vernacular hip hop artists and poets. Not only is he an accomplished wordsmith and lyricist, but also a skilled guitarist with a distinctly Cape style who has performed both locally and internationally. Jitsvinger launched his debut self-written full-length album: Skeletsleutel in 2006 and since then has recorded with a host of local and international artists. He is a strong believer in collaborating with other musicians and poets across different musical spectra and genres, always transcending boundaries, experimenting and creating new sounds. His versatility as an performer, lyricist and musician has seen him travelling across South Africa and world, from the Transkei to Taiwan,  from Cape Town to Switzerland and Amsterdam.
