Mlungisi Gegana Trio live at Flamingo Casino PDF Print E-mail


Hailing from the Eastern Cape, Mlungisi is a brilliant self-taught Bass Guitarist whose musical career saw him grow from pop music (with The Black Slaves) ,occasional club appearances (notably Kippies Jazz Club in Newtown) to a leading South African Jazz name with respect from his peers (Godfrey Mgcina, Vusi Khumalo and Louis Mahlanga to name a few) and a home with a prominent Jazz label; Gallo Jazz.

Credited as an exciting songwriter as well, Mlungisi Gegana wrote all the songs on his debut album, arranged and produced them too! He draws inspiration from Traditional and Mainstream Jazz fusion resulting in a style recognized as hard to classify but a pleasure to enjoy.

“I pick up the bass (guitar) and start playing around with notes. If I hear something I like, ke, I find it just naturally develops into a song..” says Mlungisi Gegana.

In live performances, he is accompanied by long-term friends and fellow Jazz maestros including: Mduduzi Mtshali on Piano, Clement Benny on Drums, Ivan Mazuze with Tenor and Soprano Sax as well as Neil Angel on Trumpet and Flugal Horn.

Mlungisi Gegana is currently working on his follow up album due to be released soon.
