Herbie Tsoaeli

Bio

Affectionately known as "uMalume" or "other musicians' bassist of choice", HERBIE TSOAELI is a bassist, composer, arranger and a 2013 South African Music Awards winner (Best Jazz album). Herbie cut his musical teeth in the early 80's in Nyanga East Township, Cape Town, South Africa, where he was born and raised. Since moving to Johannesburg in 1995 Herbie has developed a reputation as one of the most accomplished and in-demand acoustic bass players in the country. Over the years, Tsoaeli has brought his simplicity and honesty into joyful performances in bars, clubs, concert halls and festivals alongside South Africa’s most gifted players of music. An improviser and lover of the free-jazz ethic, Tsoaeli delights in taking the audience to a creative space of deep feeling -assured, they always return feeling stronger.

"Herbıe Tsoaelı ıs a hıghly skılled vırtuoso musıcıan, extremely complementary and supportıve accompanıst, a gıfted composer and generous ensemble player. More than all of these, Herbıe ıs a pure joy to be wıth because of hıs joyous personalıty, sunny dısposıtıon, ınfectıous laugh and frıendly accessıbılıty. I love Herbıe Tsoaelı lıke a brother I never had" - HUGH MASEKELA
