Having fast established himself as one of the best musicians to come out of Zimbabwe, Jeys Marabini has a new album out titled SILO. Recorded and Produced by Ramadu at 10th District Music Studio in 2013, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
Jeys returns with a mature sound, calm and rich with rhythms that will appeal to any music lover. SILO is a Ndebele word that describes character, strength and heroism, which is what this inspires to the listener.
His recent successful International tours took him to Austria´s Roots Music from Southern Africa in 2012 and 2013 respectively and also performing in different cities like Graz, Krems and Kapfenburg.
Back in the 90´s, inspired by the success of groups like Black Umfolosi, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Jeys formed an a cappella group by the name Comforting Brothers, which rose to fame and invaded the city of Bulawayo. In 1992 the group changed its name to Mbizo and went international, touring in a lot of different countries in Europe.
In 1999 he partnered with Louise Harding to form Equator Promotions Company in the UK that introduced several Zimbabwean musicians and groups like Mbizo, Albert Nyathi, Siyaya, and Olben Moyo to the international scene.
In 2002, Jeys decided it was time to go solo and it was then that JEYS MARABINI was born. Returning to his roots in Zimbabwe.
