Bokani Dyer's album "World Music" has been nominated for a SAMA (South African Music Award) this year in the category Best Jazz Album. Recorded in June 2015, the album is an exploration of sound, challenging the notion of 'genre'. Read the album review in All About Jazz by Dan Bilawsky below....
Although the time slot for the showcase performance at this year's Jazzahead conference was at 00h30, Performance hall 7.1 was full of enthusiastic listeners who had just enough energy for the final performance of the Overseas night. The Bokani Dyer trio featuring Romy Brauteseth (bass) and Sphelelo Mazibuko (drums) played a compact, high-energy set of select works by Bokani Dyer from his albums, Emancipate the Story (2011) and World Music (2015) which illustrate the diverse origins of his music.
The performance was made possible by The South African National Arts Council (NAC)
