Bands - Jazz

The band, Ological Studies was founded in 2008. Their musical style contains influences of Jazz, Gospel, Avantigarde, Free Jazz, African music, Funk and R ‘n’ B.

“Our greatest influence is God, therefore success is inevitable,” says the band.

Ological Studies is a concept designed to encourage self discovery of one’s purpose in life. It is a high level of “Study” because ultimately it is very crucial that every individual finds purpose and identity. Finding purpose and identity is definitely not a new philosophy, but Ological Studies has brought a new and relevant meaning in these modern times. This concept is broad; however, Phumlani Mtiti (alto saxophone) and Sibusiso Dlamini (piano) as founder members of this great life concept generally base it on their musical form of expression.

Ological Studies has been privileged to work and performed alongside prominent musicians such as Dr. Andrew Lilley, Melanie Scholtz, SelaeloSelota and Keith Tabisher. Musicians who act as role models to Ological Studies are: Robert Glasper, Kenny Garrett, AndileYenana, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Richard Bona to name a few. Ologists (as people call them) have performed in the Baxter theatre, Artscape Theatre, the University of Cape Town.

They’ve been featured by media broadcasters including SA fm, Fine Music Radio, Radio 2000 and in print in Die Son, Cape Argus, Bizability, Whats On!, Bush Radio, UCT radio.

“Our goal is to tour around the country before venturing into world stages,” says the band.

Ological Studies recorded their debut album in January 2010 entitled Freedom. The album features songs like Latest Groove, The Gathering Of Great Minds, and Siyabangena. In the album, Ological Studies combines a number of different genres including African Jazz, Gospel, R ‘n’ B and House music into one product.

The album features other artists including Tseke Malatji (tenor saxophone), Chad Honigwachs (electric bass), Mark Montgomery (electric guitar).

Founding members, Sibusiso Dlamini (piano, keyboard, vocals) and Phumlani Mtiti (alto saxophonet) are excited and ready to take their music to the rest of the world.
