Bokani Dyer Trio
Bokani Dyer is a pianist, composer and producer from Botswana-South Africa. He won awards including Standard Bank Young Artist of the Year for Jazz in 2011. His sold-out shows at Vortex in London (2014) have been described as "exciting" and "superlatives." His most recent highlights include participation in the opening of the London Jazz Festival (2014 - with his trio)
Dyer's music is prized for his creativity and emotional depth, with "soul notes, spiritual tones and sophisticated concepts." It draws on a multitude of influences, from its Southern African cultural heritage to Bach, Abdullah Ibrahim and Miles Davis, creating a celebration of all music without frontiers. The Bokani Dyer Trio includes drummer Sphelelo Mazibuko and bassist Romy Brauteseth.
