Live At The Bassline

For several years now, the celebrated southern African performers Vusi Mahlasela and Louis Mhlanga have captivated audiences with their breathtaking live performances. Now, at last, the magical moments on stage have been captured in a live recording, Vusi & Louis: Live at the Bassline. This eagerly awaited release was recorded during one of Vusi and Louis’s legendary gigs at The Bassline, one of Johannesburg’s premier live venues. The recording is a stripped down affair, featuring just two guitars and two voices, bonded together by songs of sheer magic.

The combination of Vusi’s soaring vocals and Louis’s sublime guitar work have resulted in one of the finest collaborative live albums ever produced in South Africa.

  • Brief notes on all the tracks, as well as biographical details on the performers are included on the CD insert.

Great live performance !

This CD is a perfect illustration of what South African music is : great rhythm, awesome voices and outstanding melodies. Highly recommended !

Live At The Bassline

This album is very good as the person who like jazz so much, its thrilling for me.

Best of SA

Vusi's voice and Louis' uitar skills, together with thoroughly enjoyable songs, make this an album every South African and music lover should have on his/her shelf. One of the most precious albums on my shelf now.

What Mhlanga can't do with a guitar, and what Mahlasela can't do with his voice, are probably not worth doing. These two combine on this album to produce something extraordinary. This is a recording of a magnificently uplifting performance by two world-class musicians.

Magnificent!

Truely awesome album by 2 South African virtuosos -- one of my alltime favorite cd's!
