MashLocation: Based in Durban
With his catchy, self-written compositions that always aim to blur the line between jazz and other genres, Sibusiso "Mash" Mashiloane is quick in winning the hearts and minds of a large public. Him and his band played not only the main stages of the KwaZulu Natal circuit, but also many major jazz festivals and his live performances brought him as far as USA. As a pianist he appeared with many different groups around the world and was initiating projects of his own.
After receiving his Masters degree in Jazz Performance and graduating Cum Laude from the University of KwaZulu Natal, Mash's aim is now to become an integral part of the South African and international jazz scene. He plans to release a seven-track album every year for the next seven years starting with this first release.
His performances are inspired by funk, hip hop, gospel and traditional music from South Africa, attracting music fans of all genres as well as straight ahead jazz aficionados.
Mash’ debut record "Amanz' Olwandle" is an accrual and reflection of every music experience he has accumulated throughout his upbringing and music career. It is a melting pot of fresh instrumental and vocal pieces that ooze with bold Afrocentric and contemporary rhythms, sweet melodies and soulful harmonies. This record is a must for anyone who appreciates African, Spiritual, Soul, Jazz, Funk, Lounge and even sophisticated House music. He has worked with a range of recognised vocalists and instrumentalists, such as Nick Pitman, Zoe The Seed, Xolisa Dlamini and Paras Dlamini.

- “Mr Mashiloane’s performance and compositional style reflects an interest in fusing the various forms of traditional and contemporary South African sounds with jazz, and more recently, Neo-Soul. He is particularly affable and a first-rate musician who is in high demand as an accompanist and musical director and has many successful musical collaboration projects to his credit.“ - Testimonial pianist and tutor Neil Gonsalves
