Pianist and composer Sibusiso Mash Mashiloane and his band will be in Cape Town for various concerts from Friday 16 November to Sunday 18 November as part of the launch of his third album Closer to Home.

Mashiloane’s third album release comes at a time when he wants to zoom on into his social and musical identity.

Born in Mpumalanga, surrounded by Ndebele, Pedi and Swazi people and later moving to KwaZulu Natal, he observed that each society breathes its own character: “If that character is not embraced, the significance of being part of it, is lost” says Mashiloane.

All the cultures he experienced have their own transitional, cultural impact, which gives birth to new societies of mixed cultures and traditions. You can clearly hear this in his album

Closer To Home”, is a culmination of all the musical dialects and the characteristics of the communities he has stayed and shared with.

It is however not a complete reflection, but a serious starting point, which he trusts to attain a better understanding and revelations through his studies and musical encounters.

An impressive list of established artists such as Kunle Ayo on guitar, Tlale Makhene on percussions, Paki Peloeole on drums and Qhubekani Mthetwa on bass guitar contributed to the album.

About the choice of musicians that contributed to this music he says “these musicians all take pride in their identity and are not only driven by their music’s skill impressions but also by relevancy and accuracy.”
