Philip Clouts Quartet at Jazz At The Lescar Series at The Lescar Hotel
A pianist deserving of a wider reputation, born in Cape Town, Philip Clouts' music reflects the exuberance of South African Township music, mixed with soul jazz, and Cuban rhythms. Philip's past musical adventures have included Zubop, and a collaboration with BBC World Music award-winner Juldeh Camara. This current band delves into Gnawa music, Afrobeat, European folk songs and even drum'n'bass. Its infectious, energetic stuff. Their new CD Umoya is out now on the prestigious classical label Odradek Records.
