Shane is a bassist and composer living in Cape Town. In 2013 he won the prestigious Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Jazz. In 2014 his album Oscillations (which was co-produced by Carlo Mombelli) won the SAMA for Best Jazz Album. He is known for his work with his own quintet, and also as electronica artist Card on Spokes. As a sideman and collaborator he has worked with the likes of Babu, Restless Natives, the Kyle Shepherd Trio, Kesivan & The Lights, Malcolm Braff, Nils Berg, Feya Faku, and many more.



Viewing the guitar as a miniature orchestra, Reza Khota performs with a musicality and technical facility that recalls the rich history of the instrument. He is equally comfortable performing composed and improvised music. The guitarist has performed on such important events as the Arts Alive Festival and four times at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival. He is the composer and guitarist for the crossover band Babu, which is regarded by many as one of the most cutting edge Jazz/World music ensembles in South Africa at the moment. In 2008, Babu released their debut album Up Roots (nominated by the Mail and Guardian as one of the top 20 SA albums of the decade). The band has since been nominated for two Sama awards and conducted a successful tour of South Africa funded by Mmino. In 2009 Babu also conducted a successful tour of Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and a year later in Swaziland, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Madagascar.


For this duo performance, Reza and Shane come together to perform a selection of original works by the two of them. Having worked together since 2006 in various bands (including SAMA nominee Babu) they have formed one of the tightest musical connections between a guitarist and bassist. They weave together a rich tapestry of sound in their dynamic performances, often dancing between different genres, and creating a truly unique journey of instrumental music.
