Dyer-Logue @ The Orbit 11 & 12th June
A musical dialogue between father and son, Steve and Bokani Dyer this past weekend at the Orbit Jazz club. The concert explored personal and socio-political themes that tell their unique story through music - from harrowing tales of days in exile in the 80's in Botswana (where Bokani was born), to questions about the imagined vs. the actual, current day South Africa.
