In April 2018, multi-award-winning composer and pianist Bokani Dyer launched his fourth studio album, Neo Native, an intimate, inviting listening experience and a re-imagination of the sound of the standard piano trio. ( The album won Best Jazz Album at the South African Music Awards – SAMA – in May 2019 at Sun City)
Dyer’s trio have made up his performance outfit for the past two years. They are Sphelelo Mazibuko (drums) and Romy Brauteseth (double bass), and together with Dyer, they have forged a sound in which all members are at home in the music allowing the freedom for new interpretations at every performance. It is evident from the music on Neo Native that the three musicians share strong chemistry.
The 14-track album features new material as well as reimagined works from previous albums Emancipate the Story (2011) and World Music (2015).
“Neo Native is an idea about identity. How one chooses to identify and a question of what a person feels connected to as native. In the human experience beyond geography, where does the feeling of home reside?” says Dyer.
The Bokani Dyer Trio will play from their album during a very intimate two sets performance at Les Créatifs, Head Chef Wandile Mabaso’s fine dining restaurant in Bryanston, on Friday 28 February 2020. Be sure not to miss that exceptional concert and dinner which will kick start the Art of the Trio series 2020.
The Art of the Trio series is curated by Aymeric Péguillan from Pegs Music Project.
