UKZN Jazz lecturer and pianist Mr Sibusiso Mashiloane will, next month, release his third album titled Closer to Home.
Events to launch the album will be held in Durban, Johannesburg, Eastern Cape, Swaziland and Cape Town from September until November this year.
The album launch tour comes at a time in his career where he wants to zoom into his social and musical identity. Born in Mpumalanga province, where he grew up surrounded by Ndebele, Pedi and Swazi people and later moving to KwaZulu-Natal, he observed that each society breeds its own character. ‘If that character is not embraced the significance of being part of it, is lost’ says Mashiloane.
