Sibusiso Mashiloane: Six Years of Sounding Home

Jazz / Dsg Hall

Durban-based pianist and composer Sibusiso ‘Mash’ Mashiloane is a virtuoso player and conductor, well known for his live performances and award-winning recordings. His performances have earned him the respect of local and international audiences and his latest album, Music from My People, reflects the composer’s sonic collaboration, internationalism and intergenerational inspiration, featuring many rhythmic languages and an exploration of self-identity. Mashiloane describes the album as a “peace maker”, spreading the spirit of togetherness and ubuntu. An active composer, Mashiloane has released 5 albums since 2016 that were all either nominated or won at various award ceremonies such as the SAMAs, the AFRIMA awards and the International Urban Music Awards. He is also a serious academic, with a Masters in Jazz Performance (cum laude) from the University of KwaZulu Natal, and he is currently working towards his PhD. Mash has certainly established his musical footprint very solidly and rapidly!

We are grateful to Pro Helvetia Johannesburg, the Swiss Arts Council and Fonds Podium Kunsten Performing Arts Fund NL for making this performance possible.
