Jazz on the Hill with Tutu Puoane and Ewout Pierreux
Cost: R595.00 per person (includes dinner)
Date: 25 August 2019
Singer Tutu Puoane and pianist Ewout Pierreux met during a rehearsal in 2002 in Leuven (Belgium), and have been inseparable ever since. As musical and life partners they know each other through and through.
The combination of Puoane’s South African roots and Pierreux’s classical and jazz-based piano playing brings a unique blend of African, European and American music traditions, rooted in soul and jazz, their two big common loves.
They have been working together for more than fifteen years in various projects, and together they have released a handful of albums in various larger ensembles, but lately they are more and more active as a duo.
Together, with all the space, mobility, intimacy and freedom this setting allows, they undertake a journey through their large repertoire. A trip that is different every time, but always with that pinch of magic that makes every concert a unique experience.
