Durban-based pianist and composer Sibusiso Mash Mashiloane will perform live at the KZNSA Gallery on February 25, 2022, at 18h00.

Mashiloane is a virtuoso player and conductor, with his live performances being the drawcard that has garnered his audiences across the world and his recording has been awarded many times. This month, he is releasing his 6th album titled Music From My People, a rich album that reflects the composer’s sonic collaboration, geographic travel and pure intergenerational inspiration and influence.

“This album is a multifaceted vessel and sonic document that archives some of the sounds people have used and continue to use as a testimony of their social conditions,” says Mashiloane.

Music for my People is a 10-track album with a comprehensive approach that echoes many rhythmic languages, multi-generational comradery in sound, an exploration into self-identity. The creation is weaved in the fabric of family, community, country, the African continent and the world. The Jazz genre is interpreted in its many phases and decades, carrying along with the introspective experiences linked to those specific relevant times. The album is not carefully curated and synchronised to direct you from one point to another but more so a puzzle that pieces the listener’s personal interpretative experiences together, just as how Mashiloane's journey of music has been.
