“Mabuta” is Japanese for “eyelid” – “If you want to enter the dream world,” explains bandleader Shane Cooper, “first you have to close your eyes. I want our music to allow you to enter the dream world.”

The SBYA and SAMA award-winning bassist and composer describes the project as a blend of his two long-time musical passions of jazz and electronic music, with a smidgeon of World Music. Mabuta, harnessing some of the strongest young voices in our country at the moment, is undoubtedly one of the freshest and most innovative sounds featured in the South African contemporary jazz scene today.
