Herbie Tsoaeli 'From Time To Time'
Herbie Tsoaeli “ From Time To Time" Live at UNTITLED BASEMENT, 25th JULY
Bassist, Composer and Arranger, Herbie Tsoaeli is the 2013 Best Jazz Album South African Music Award winner, for his debut album African Time. Better known as “uMalume” by most of his fans in the South African jazz scene, following his hit “Hamba No Malume” from the African Time album, Herbie’s music is a combination of different elements of South African music, and jazz.
He refers to his music as a spiritual experience and has coined the term “Jazz Moya” to describe it, which means Jazz influenced by spirits. Having played with South African Jazz greats such as Abdullah Ibrahim, Zim Ngqawana, Bheki Mseleku, Louis Moholo and Wynston Mankunku Ngozi, it came as no surprise that Herbie’s debut album, which was a culmination of over two decades of playing in the SA jazz scene, scooped the prestigious jazz SAMA in 2013.
He is currently very excited to play once again with his Pears and old friends Andile Yenana Sidney Mnisi who don't need any introduction. As they were part of the band “VOICE” “From Time to Time” He gets to play with his pear and also involve the younger musicians Such as Ayanda Sikade who he has worked with for many year and also Recorded with him on the Award winning Debut album. Robbin Fassie I know his father and I have seen him grow in a musician he is becoming is exciting.
