Mali Zulu and his band are set to perform at The Still Sessions at Distillery031, 1st Floor The Foundry, 43 Station Drive, Durban at 6 pm on Wednesday, July 6. Tickets R70 at http://www.webtickets.co.za and at Pick ‘n Pay.
Mali is a talented musician born in a village called KwaMaphumulo, on the outskirts of Stanger in the beautiful grassy plains of Northern KwaZulu-Natal.
He grew up singing in school choirs from Grade One and in Grade Twelve he was selected for the Northern KwaZulu-Natal Youth Choir, where he received practical coaching and travelled throughout South Africa.
Mali will perform at The Still Sessions with a three piece acoustic band. Qin Zungu plays an acoustic guitar and sings, which brings powerful music dynamic and blends in very well with the feel of the band. Skippy Khubeka, he keeps the trio center and defiantly brings the grove on with his amazing bass skills.
When asked what Mali Zulu would bring us at The Still Sessions, he said: “They say Love makes the world go around, you will either think about your Lover or you will dance together.”
In 2014 he entered Idols season 10 and made it to the top 31. Following this Mali landed a record deal and started working on his own compositions. He has since been performing a lot and has graced the stage at some of SA’s most beautiful venues and festivals, such as: The Rock Music Bistro, The Lion’s Festival, The Dutch and The Outland Festival. His biggest dream is to have his own studio, so he could offer other people a chance to experience producing their own music and succeeding in their careers.
His latest single titled Try is available online and he is currently working on an EP.
