Award- winning jazz pianist, and recently appointed Wits lecturer, Andre Petersen, is sure to set the Great Hall alight with his incredible quartet featuring recent Berklee College of Music graduate and now New York -based, Kesivan Naidoo (drums), Sisonke Xonti (saxophone) and Romy Brauteseth (bass).
The concert will feature mostly original material from Petersen's two recently released albums, the Norwegian/South African collaboration, "The Storm Inside" featuring Feya Faku, and the acclaimed two-piano album with New York based classical pianist, Kathleen Tagg, "Where Worlds Collide". It is an eclectic programme of original material with influences of Cape Ghoema, classical, post-Bop and many more, delivering a uniquely Pan-African sound - a concert not to be missed!
