Sibusile Xaba

Bio

Sibusile carries forth the Maskandi / Mbaqanga tradition of the KwaZulu Natal midlands, from where he originates. Steeped in the lineage of Zulu guitar giant Madala Kunene (Sibusile’s first mentor) & warrior chants of vocal master, Shaluza Max, he not only owns these influences, but pushes the envelope as only a maestro with a keen ear for the future does. Sibusile has also for the last few years been mentored by the legendary Dr Philip Tabane (the originator of Malombo music).

The result of many years of preparation, his debut double album project comprises two timeless music offerings which are mystical and otherworldly, yet organically familiar. Tracing innate storytelling that is beyond words, Sibusile Xaba fearlessly digs beyond conformity to unearth rich, vibrant African heritage lost to today’s musical generation.
