MABUTA – ‘Welcome To This World’
Album Launch Tour 2018
This February, Shane Cooper and his new band MABUTA launch their much anticipated debut album Welcome To This World. Recorded in 2017 on funds raised via crowdfunding, the band presents a unique body of work combining various influences from jazz to world music, and electronic music. The live band is lead by SAMA award-winning bassist and composer Shane Cooper of Cape Town, and features some of South Africa’s freshest musicians: Bokani Dyer (keys), Sisonke Xonti (tenor sax), Robin Fassie-Kock (trumpet), Marlon Witbooi (drums), and special guest Reza Khota (guitar).
Welcome To This World is a powerful album by the group, with potent guest appearances by Shabaka Hutchings, Buddy Wells and more. Hear the music live in Cape Town and Joburg this Feb.
(Tickets are available at the door for each show.)
