Jazz Xpression End Of Year Session

Featuring Sibusiso Mash Mashiloane
Saturday 22 December
iSupport Music Business in partnership with Concerts SA presents the Real Cats End of the Year Session at Jazz Xpression House in Glenmore, Durban at 10 am on Saturday 22 December. Two pianists will feature large- Sibusiso Mash Mashiloane and Sanele Phakathi.
Sibusiso Mash Mashiloane is a prolific artist whose academic credentials speak volumes for the kind of passion and discipline he has for music. He has a Masters in Jazz Performance and graduated Cum Laude from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Mash has been well received by audiences while touring to promote his two albums Amanz’ Olwandle (2016) and Rotha – A Tribute to Mama (2017).
His debut album Amanz’ Olwandle was the first glimpse of a very promising musical journey through jazz, an accrual and reflection of every music experience he had accumulated throughout his upbringing and music career. Amanz’ Olwandle secured two awards at the first ever Mzantsi Jazz Awards- Best Contemporary Jazz Album (decided by a jury) and Best Jazz Album (voted for by the public). The awards aim to recognize excellence in jazz music in South Africa.
In August 2017, his second album Rotha – A Tribute to Mama followed- an acoustic traditional jazz album that radiates South African heritage sound and universal jazz influences. He describes this album as mostly sharing Coltrane’s harmonic movements with African influences within the melody and most notably references to South African tribal and spiritual sounds.
He also is a teacher with a focused goal to help grow talent from a firm foundation of African Roots. He lectures at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and Durban Music School. His focus is to teach and organize live music performances with his students focusing on South African composers and in line with this development Mashiloane is currently busy with his PhD, focusing on South African composers.
