For this performance Mashiloane will be accompanied by Zoe The Seed on vocals, Dalisu Ndlazi on bass guitar and Riley Giandhari on drums.

“Live music performances are very much shaped by the audience. So knowing the history of this area gives me assurance that there will be a lot of singing and dancing from the audiences, young and old. I am very much looking forward to the experience: Ngiya KwaZulu! ” says Mashiloane

Mashiloane is a prolific artist whose academic credentials speak volumes for the kind of passion and discipline he has for music.
