Shane Cooper presents: Mabuta

The Orbit Jazz Club
Sat 22 September   /   R150 - R250

Bassist and composer Shane Cooper returns with his band MABUTA to the Orbit this September. After launching their critically-acclaimed debut album Welcome To This World in February this year, they've gone on to release a special Japanese edition with Inpartmaint Inc. and have a double vinyl edition coming out on Afrosynth later this year. One of the freshest instrumental acts in South Africa right now, their music blends elements of jazz, world music and dance music influences into a groove-centric journey for the mind and soul.

"The sextet's mix of South African jazz and contemporary electronic music is all kinds of friendly and forges a strong connection, even as it simultaneously creates an environment that sparks an introspective reaction." – Bird is the Worm

"If the eyes are the windows to the soul and a portal opening to reality and closing on dreams, then the eyelids can be seen as the gatekeepers to such worlds. Mabuta—a genre-merging band taking its name from the Japanese word for eyelid—has a keen understanding of that concept." -

Shane Cooper - basses
Bokani Dyer – piano & synths
Marlon Clive Witbooi - drums
Sisonke Xonti - tenor sax
Robin Fassie-Kock - trumpet
