Pilani Bubu Trio (JAR)
JAZZ OF FOUR CONTINENTS
Indelible singer-songwriter, TV presenter, Pilani Bubu is never without a life experience etched into her heart and mind in a highly expressive musical journey. She tells authentic stories of inspiration, identity and influence. She’s a creative entrepreneur, a multifarious artist, an intentional performer with a unique voice and cohesive global sound she likes to call “jazzy folk soul.” Through her own independent label and publishing company, Bupila Publishing, she released the EP Journey of a Heart (2012) produced by the soulful RJ Benjamin, Warrior of Light (2016) co-produced and arranged by veteran jazz guitarist Luke Van Der Merwe, and Folklore - Chapter 1 (2019) co-produced with South African master guitarist Billy Monama and bassist Bheka Mthethwa whose love for and command of the South African guitar styles ‘mbaqanga’ and ‘Isicathamiya’ played a huge role in fulfilling Pilani Bubu’s vision for the project. Folklore - Chapter 1, was awarded the Best African Adult Contemporary Album at the 26th edition of the South African Music Awards (SAMA26). In Folklore Pilani seeks to use music as a platform to capture and preserve our collective heritage—with this she has founded the Folklore Community. Her intention with this project grew from a lifelong commitment to document, preserve and share our culture and heritage for the next generation.
