SIBUSISO MASH MASHILOANE: ROTHA – A TRIBUTE TO MAMA
Sibusiso Mash Mashiloane’s debut album Amanz’ Olwandle (released in December 2016) was the first glimpse of a very promising musical journey through jazz; an accrual and reflection of every music experience he has accumulated throughout his upbringing and music career. In August 2017, his second album Rotha – A Tribute to Mama is following.
This second album is very close to Sibusiso’s heart, it was recorded on the day his mother passed away and has compositions that were written in 2003, at beginning of his career as a musician. Rotha is an acoustic traditional jazz album that radiates South African heritage, sound, and universal jazz influences. Sibusiso 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.
Not only is Mash an incredible artist, he is also a teacher with a focused goal to help grow talent form a firm foundation of African Roots. He lectures at the University of KwaZulu Natal and Durban Music School. His focus is to teach and organise live music performances with his students, focusing on South African composers. In line with this development Mashiloane is currently busy with his PhD focusing on South African music.
