Lunch Vibes with Mash Trio at Alliance Française de Durban

Prolific pianist and composer Sibusiso Mash Mashiloane will be performing with his 3-men band dubbed Mash Trio at Lunch Vibes at Alliance Française de Durban on Saturday 7 April from 12pm. Entrance is free.

“ People can expect to be “Mashed up” during an intimate session where we will bring music from both my albums “ Amanz’ Olwandle and Rotha” says Mashiloane

Sibusiso Mash Mashiloane is a prolific artist who’s academic credentials speak volume for the kind of passion and discipline he has for music. He has a Masters in Jazz Performance and graduated Cum Laude from the University of KwaZuu Natal. Mash is an integral performer and has been well received by audiences while touring the country and beyond to promote his two albums “Amanz’ Olwandle” (2016) and “Rotha – A Tribute to Mama” (2017).

His 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. Amanz’ Olwandle was awarded with 2 awards at the first ever Mzantsi Jazz Awards, best Contemporary Jazz Album (decided by a jury) and Best Jazz Album (voted for by the public). The awards aim to recognize excellence in jazz music in South Africa.

In August 2017, his second album “Rotha – A Tribute to Mama” followed. This second album is an acoustic traditional jazz album that radiates South African heritage sound and universal jazz influences. He 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 a great artist in this very vibrant time in South African jazz music, he also is 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 organize live music performances with his students focusing on South African composers and in line with this development Mashiloane is currently busy with his second PHD focusing on South African composers.

Lunch Vibes is an unique experience, where everyone is welcome. It is also the perfect occasion to introduce children to live music, while the whole family can enjoy a meal at Fusion French Café.
