Sizwe Mashinini On The World Show With Nicky B

Our first musician feature of 2024 gets things started.
Sizwe Mashinini, a talented pianist, composer, and producer, joins us in the studio.
In addition to working with numerous artists, Sizwe has released music as a solo artist. These include Benjamin Dube, Zwai Bala, Lawrence Matshiza, Hugh Masekela, Stimela, and Nhlanhla Nciza.
In addition to an EP titled "The Child is Born 2" and a single named "See The World" honouring the late Ray Phiri and Mnca Mtshali, his highly praised 2016 debut album "The Child is Born" was released two years later.
He released a 2021 tribute to Joe Sample titled "Way Back Home," and at the end of the previous year, he released his most recent, "The Child is Born 3."
As we explore this lovely solo piano release, we will be talking about his journey.
