The Event

THE TALENTED CAPE JAZZ PIANIST AND COMPOSER, RAMON ALEXANDER WILL PERFORMING AT CURRO HERMANUS WITH HIS BAND
 
Wednesday 25 April:
Venue: School Hall, Curro Hermanus
 
Ramon Alexander is the last and youngest of the Cape Jazz disciples – building bridges between the old and the young. Cape Jazz is influenced by Kaapse church music, langarm and folk music. It is the music of the coloured people of the Cape – today appreciated by all with an ear for good music, melodies and rhythm. It is a fusion of indigenous sounds mixed with Western and European music flavours and finds its origins form early colonialist times where slavery was rife. Ramon is especially inspired by the father of Cape Jazz, Abdullah Ebrahim. Another important and now exciting influence and collaborator, is that of Cape Jazz and fusion composer and pianist Ibrahim Khalil Shihab. These two composers and pianists will be launching a collaborative album in October 2018.
 
Come and experience the talent of one of the last Cape Jazz talents. Alexander has performed at the critically acclaimed international Cape Jazz festival, the Borneo Jazz Festival and the Grahamstown Jazz Festival. He also accompanies various solo artists and has performed with the likes of popular singers such as Anton Goosen, Anna Davel, Mel Botes, Amanda Strydom, Danie Niehaus, Matthys Roets, Zolani Mahola (Freshly Ground), Bobby van Jaarsveld and Francois van Coke, among many.
