One of South Africa’s busiest session musicians, Schalk is a product of his cultural heritage. He’s able to articulate South African melodies, West African grooves and harmony in the European tradition to produce a cohesive, melodic sound. He’s performed, produced and recorded with the likes of David Kramer, Nico Carstens and Michelle Shocked.
Schalk and his quartet create african jazz with a strong world music influence that incorporates sounds from the far east, contemporary modern jazz and polyrhythmic cross cultural pollination.
