MSMF was created in 2015 out of a friendship of musicians seeking a platform to present their original music. They’ve since gone on to play extensively in and around the Cape and have their music featured in film.

MSMF exemplifies how the young guns coming out of Schools of Music wish to push their kind of jazz towards new boundaries in sound.

Out of every new composition an exciting freedom is created and grown into while respecting the forms which draw mainly from Contemporary and Old School Hip-Hop, Contemporary Jazz, and South African Jazz.

The name MSMF symbolizes the importance of the musician to the music. Each role played is integral as much as it is essential, and is shaped by the players personality as well as the instrument used to express it.
