Once upon a time, not so long ago, Margaret had a daughter. She called her Adri-Mari, or Ami for short. Fast forward a couple of years and Ami has established herself as one of South Africa’s top singer-songwriters. Together with multi-instrumentalist and indie producer, Etienne Ghyoot, they are the Margaret’s Daughter duo that fans have come to know and love.

Over the years, Ami and Etienne have paid their dues by performing literally hundreds of shows. They’ve shared the stage with most of South Africa’s top artists, have played most of South Africa’s major festivals and have even performed internationally (Mexico, England, Spain, Mozambique). It’s almost hard to believe that they are completely independent. 


Margaret’s Daughter can adapt their stage act to suit the venue and mood required. They perform either as an acoustic duo or as a full rock band, incorporating different musicians as the need arises. Whichever way they perform, one thing remains constant: Ami’s timeless songs and unique voice, accompanied by her rhythmic acoustic guitar playing.
