His debut album Amanz’ Olwandle (released in December 2016) was the first glimpse of a very promising musical journey through jazz, an accrual and reflection of every music experience he has accumulated throughout his upbringing and music career. Amanz’ Olwandle was awarded the first ever Mzantsi Jazz Awards, best Contemporary Jazz Album (decided by a jury) and Best Jazz Album (voted for by the public).


In August 2017, his second album “Rotha – A Tribute to Mama” was launched. This album is an acoustic traditional jazz album that radiates a South African heritage sound as well as universal jazz influences. He describes this album as sharing Coltrane’s harmonic movements, infusing the melody with African and most notably references to South African tribal and spiritual sounds.


Not only is Mash a great artist in this very vibrant time in South African jazz music, he also is a teacher with a focused goal to help grow talent from African Roots. He lectures at the University of KwaZulu Natal and Durban Music School. His focus is to teach and organize live music performances with his students focusing on South African composers and in line with this development Mashiloane is currently busy with his PHD focusing on South African composers.
