ABOUT THE ARTISTS
The Brother Moves On
The Brother Moves On (TBMO) is an innovative South African performance art ensemble rooted in Johannesburg, Gauteng. Established around 2008-2010 by the versatile artist Nkululeko Mthembu and his sibling Siyabonga Mthembu, the group originated as an expansive art collective, encompassing graphic and performance artists. Over the years, TBMO has evolved into a prominent band, fronted by Siyabonga Mthembu as the lead vocalist, with Zelizwe Mthembu on lead guitar, Ayanda Zalekile on bass, and Simphiwe Tshabalala on drums. This core quartet is frequently joined by a dynamic array of collaborators and multi-disciplinary artists from diverse backgrounds.
Malcolm Jiyane, a multi-talented jazz musician, leads the vanguard of South Africa’s jazz scene. As a trombonist and pianist, he effortlessly blends charismatic leadership with an open canvas for fellow musicians. His journey began when his mentor, Bra Johny, ignited his hidden talents while performing for street kids. Music became Malcolm’s lifeline, guiding him away from a troubled path. His intense, expressive music tells the story of his life journey, championing the ‘One Love Movement.’ Malcolm’s mentorship by jazz legends like Jonas Gwangwa shaped his career. His international performances in Germany, Sweden, Holland, and the U.S. reinforce his status as a rising jazz star. Bra Johny aptly called him “the future Jonas Gwangwa.”
