Concert Series: Shane Cooper’s MABUTA

November 3 @ 8:30 pm

Norval Foundation’s Concert Series is proud to present: MABUTA

MABUTA is a 5 piece instrumental band from Johannesburg, South Africa. Their sound incorporates elements of energetic jazz, electronic music and world music colours. Featuring Shane Cooper on basses, Bokani Dyer on keyboards, Marlon Witbooi on drums, Sisonke Xonti on tenor sax, and Robin Fassie on trumpet, their live shows are known to be epic journeys through heavy groove spaces as well as cinematic dreamscapes.

They launched their highly anticipated debut album Welcome To This World in 2018. The record features several heavyweight guests, including Shabaka Hutchings from London. It’s received support on Worldwide FM, BBC Radio 1Xtra, and more. The vinyl edition was released on Afrosynth Records and distributed with Rush Hour. The album was followed up with a remixes album featuring an amazing array of international producers including Slugabed (Ninja Tune), and Daedelus (Brainfeeder).

“Mabuta is a supergroup comprising some of the best contemporary jazz artists from South Africa, their performances are emotional, coercive and inspiring – all the characteristics you look for in a live act.” (Angela Weickl for Texx And The City).
