Nduduzo Makhathini solo
Each new generation has its own rising stars. For the young South African guard, this includes Nduduzo Makhathini, chosen by the mythical Blue Note label to inaugurate its African branch, Blue Note Africa. This jazz pianist, composer and healer has already shared the stage with greats such as Wynton Marsalis, Nasheet Waits and Logan Richardson. His music is virtuosic and projects a spiritual and ritualistic vision of the world. 'Less is more' applies to his performance in Flagey: all Makhathini needs is a piano to transport us into his wonderful world.
The Brother Moves On
The Brother Moves On guarantees both wonderful music and unique performances. This South-African performance-art collective uses multidisciplinary concepts to offer its audience innovative and holistic experiences. The group is currently touring around the world and is on its third album, which will be released by Shabaka Hutchings' English label Native Rebel Recordings. Their success formula? A rousing afro-futuristic fusion with influences from dub-metal, psychedelic rock and jazz.
