Known for the extraordinary improvisational skills jazz maestros are famed for, he’s displayed this very trait to great lengths. From creating fresh, new versions of each song he performs live in concert to the off-the-top-of-their-heads internet-breaking hit “Tadow” (over 93 million views and counting) with his close collaborator FKJ, no two Masego shows are the same.
The pioneer of the self-coined genre “Trap House Jazz”, it’s now evolved into a posse of musicians about 100 deep, their bio aptly stating “A lotta talented cats making music where ignorance meets elegance” which just about sums it up the best. He has been widely noted for being equally versatile on multiple instruments (the piano, saxophone, and drums to name a few) and his premier vocal runs and bars allow him to stand on a pedestal against his contemporaries.
Don’t miss the multi-talented Masego as he kicks of his very first Asian tour with his live band in Malaysia this March!
