(Sibusiso “Mash” Mashiloane)

In association with Concerts SA, iSupport Music Business and Rainbow Restaurant present Sibusiso “Mash” Mashiloane Live in concert.

Sibusiso “Mash” Mashiloane presents his 7-track recording project Amanz’ Olwandle with this concert series in KwaZulu-Natal. Mash and his band will visit Seaman’s Corner in Hammarsdale on April 1, Rainbow Restaurant in Pinetown on April 2 and Luthuli Museum in Groutville on April 7.

With his catchy, self-written compositions that always aim to blur the line between jazz and other genres Mash is quick in winning the hearts and minds of a large public. He and his band played not only the main stages of the KZN circuit, but also many major jazz festivals and his live performances brought him as far as USA. As a pianist he appeared with many different groups around the world and was initiating projects of his own. After getting his Masters degree in Jazz Performance and graduating Cum Laude from the University of KwaZulu-Natal his aim is now to become an integral part of the South African and international jazz scene. Mash plans to release a seven-track album every year for the next seven years starting with this first release.

Mash’ debut record Amanz' Olwandle is an accrual and reflection of every music experience he has accumulated throughout his upbringing and music career. It is a melting pot of fresh instrumental and vocal pieces that ooze with bold Afrocentric and contemporary rhythms, sweet melodies and soulful harmonies. This record is a must for anyone who appreciates African, Spiritual, Soul, Jazz, Funk, Lounge and even sophisticated House music. He has worked with a range of recognised vocalists and instrumentalists, such as Nick Pitman, Zoe The Seed, Xolisa Dlamini and Paras Dlamini.

For the performances, his band will comprise of Sibusiso Mashiloane on keys, Riley Giandhari on drums, Xolisa Dlamini on vocals, Nick Pitman on guitar and Qhubekani Mthethwa on bass guitar.

“For this launch tour people can expect to hear the many different faces from the album, without compromising the sound that I have created to be my own.” Says Mash
