Sibusile Xaba

Sibusile Xaba

Curated by Shabaka Hutchings

Equal parts acoustic guitar visionary and urban mythologist, South-Africa’s Sibusile Xaba creates a wonderful blend of African folk, flamenco and jazz. Supported by expressive fingerpicking and hushed jazz chords, Xaba sings in Zulu with full commitment: mimicking his twangy acoustic guitar tone, laughing, declaiming and weeping over the tracks. With a playful and spiritual sound that rises above natural life, it sounds like Xaba’s soulful voice is channeling to another universe.
