Jesse Mogale is a SA born bassist, composer and music educator, from a working class family. He started playing the electric bass in 1978 and the Double bass in 2008. His brother Moses, a guitarist, has been his mentor and a source of inspiration. Jesse comes from a musical family and an environment rich with indigenous multicultural traditional music.
Jesse graduated with a BSc (Chemistry) degree from Wits University. He later sacrificed the periodic table for music notes when he decided to leave the mining industry (gold refining) to focus on music performance and providing the muchneeded music education to disadvantaged black children in Mamelodi under the auspices of CAFCA an organisation he co-founded with his brother.
Jesse has jammed and performed with musicians like Kippie Moeketsi, Barney Rachabane, Bheki Mseleku, Allen Kwela, Zim Nqawana, Vusi Mahlasela, James Morrison and bands like Four Sounds Plus Three
His continued search for knowledge led to the discovery of the ISB whose journals and his attendance of their biannual conventions provided a wealth of information.
Jesse performed extensively in major festivals and musical theatres locally and abroad.
