Hexagonal bring to Sheffield music based on the joyous, pulsating township-influenced jazz of the late, great South African multi-instrumentalist and composer Bheki Mseleku. Originally formed in 2016 to pay musical tribute to Meseleku (with whom pianist John Donaldson and bassist Simon Thorpe played) the band’s brief is simple: to expand its horizons while staying close to the spirit of Mseleku’s highly tuneful approach to jazz, which now means an increasing amount of compositional input from the group’s own members, as well as personal re-arrangements of works by other composers who inspired Mseleku, most notably McCoy Tyner.
