Sjava Mirrors Himself And Society On New Album, “Isibuko”

South African singer-songwriter and rapper Jabulani Hadebe, known professionally as Sjava begins 2023 with a full body of work since his two year hiatus.

Named after the isiZulu word for ‘mirror’, Sjava’s fourth studio labum, Isibuko is a self-reflection – but also a reflection of society.

Sjava – Isibuko

Isibuko is Sjava’s meditation on the ups and downs of love, and life’s unending challenges and triumphs, as he takes time to inspire and motivate, which has been his defining trait of music since his prominence in 2016 with his debut, “Isina Muva”.

British producer duo Delayde and Webmomos link up with Sjava’s longtime producer Ruff to provide a soulful soundscape that leans towards electronic jazz, defined by a flurry of lush airy pads and Ruff’s signature bassline, a fitting backdrop for the heartfelt musings of Sjava and his staggering roster of guest stars.
