A three legged African potpie pot (Ngxawu) full of delicious sounds, concocted by : Hilton, Lungiswa & Vuyo. A once off magical collaboration of three wonderful South African musicians. This will get to the heart and roots of South African music, and opportunities to see 3 individuals of this stature cooking together don’t come often!
Hilton Schilder is a composer and jazz pianist/multi-instrumentalist. Hilton was born into a musical family in Lotus River, Cape Town. He is the son of esteemed South African jazz pianist Tony Schilder (1937-2010) and nephew of Chris Schilder of Cape Town’s groundbreaking jazz-fusion group of the 1970s, Pacific Express. Hilton partnered with Mac McKenzie in the mid-80s to form the legendary Genuines, a rock outfit that channeled the folk music of the Cape through punk. Post-Genuines, Hilton immersed himself more deeply into jazz and was a member and contributing composer of Robbie Jansen’s Sons of Table Mountain. In the early 2000s, he performed with the Goema Captains of Cape Town and released his first solo album entitled No Turning Back on Mountain Records in 2003. He was the project leader of the South African/Swiss jazz ensemble Iconoclast in 2008 as well as numerous other international performances and collaborations.
