After a chilly and exhausting Grahamstown festival it is back to the daily grind....and traffic!
Some of the complements from critics during the fest:
“Dyer is a sensitive accompanist” Nigel Vermaas- Cue
“Bokani Dyer (who produced the Our Time album) is given a little more leeway on keyboards, and he earned it:” Nigel Vermaas- Cue Newspaper
“The performance received further propulsion with Bonkani Dyer’s (piano/keyboard) extended melodic interpolations, technical dexterity, and harmonic imagination” Jeffrey Brukman- Cue
We are very excited to announce that he Bokani Dyer Quintet will be performing on the opening night of the London Jazz Festival. I am so blessed to be playing with Soweto Kinch, Chris Williams and Neil Charles. Further details and links to follow soon.
The Secret City Soiree will be taking place in a beautiful home in Camps Bay and will make or an amazingly intimate evening of music. I feel very privileged o have been approached by the city, and look forward to doing more of these events in the future.
For the latter half of this month I will be part of the “Moeira Jazz Project” in Mozambique. Very looking forward to this project, in a beautiful part of Africa.
Work is proceeding beautifully with the production side on my two new albums.
