The Jazz South African Roots Summit with John Clayton & WDR Big Band

After waiting for two long years for the corona pandemic to “settle down”, our project will finally be staged on March 25th at the Philharmonie Mercatorhalle in Duisburg, Germany.

I am a huge fan of John Clayton. So when I was offered the chance to work with him two years ago, I knew I wanted to focus on a South African repertoire. I chose some of my favourite tunes from home and my dear ‘mkhulu’ John was given the task of arranging the tunes for the WDR Big Band. This concert was initially supposed to take place in April 2020, but we all know what happened.

I’m so glad and so grateful that we are all still alive, well, safe and healthy and that 2 years later, our concert can take place.
