Saxophone hip hop remixes. Soul vocals that’ll make you sweat. The sensual art of seduction. It’s all fair game when it comes to Kingston-born, Virginia-based vocalist Masego. His “TrapHouseJazz” sound has evolved from an early exposure to gospel, an eclectic record collection, and countless time spent mastering new instruments. Masego’s passion and flair has earned him regular touring spots alongside Leon Bridges, and he’ll be treating Texas to some extra heat when he plays the Tito’s Handmade Vodka Stage 6PM both Saturdays at ACL.
Masego’s latest single “Big Girls” takes inspiration from the “Lizzo energy” he observed in Nairobi, and with the help of VanJess’ Ivana, he’s made a bangin’ genre-bender of body positivity.
