Ilminster Arts Centre – “Sunsplash” South African township jazz

May 27 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

£18

Jazz from the South African townships

 “Emotionally-felt, highly listenable melodies and improvisations which colourfully lift the spirits” Adrian Pallant

PHILIP CLOUTS and NEIL MAYA            with special guest trumpet player ANDY HAGUE,  

plus Marcus Vergette (bass)     and Coach York (drums)

Pianist Philip Clout’s band “SUNSPLASH” focuses on a modern style of jazz from his birthplace, South Africa, a jazz genre in its own right, with it’s own special sound and appeal. 

It exudes new rhythms, colour and it’s own distinctly happy sound.  Abdullah Ibrahim was at the root of it’s early 60s popularity with his breakthrough hit ‘Mannenberg’, together with Miriam Makeba’s ‘Click Song’ and many tunes by Dudu Pukwana and Hugh Masakela and others.
