Make sure to not miss this outstanding night with the South African piano virtuoso Nduduzo Makhathini followed by a performance of Omer Klein & Studnitzky.
Nduduzo Makhathini grew up in the lush and rugged hillscapes of umGungundlovu in South Africa, a peri-urban landscape in which music and ritual practices were symbiotically linked. The area is significant historically as the site of the Zulu king Dingane kingdom between 1828 and 1840. It is important to note that the Zulu, in fact the African warrior code, is deeply reliant on music for motivation and healing. This deeply embedded symbiosis is key to understanding Makhathini’s vision.
Pianist Omer Klein and Trumpeter Sebastian Studnitzky need no introduction. They are both internationally acclaimed composers and band leaders, who have been creating their own unique sound worlds for years. Having known and appreciated each other's work for a while, it was only in the summer of 2021 that the two played their first notes together, in what would become a decisive moment.
