RAMON ALEXANDER MINI TOUR APRIL 2018


THE TALENTED CAPE JAZZ PIANIST AND COMPOSER, RAMON ALEXANDER WILL TRAVELING WITH HIS ACCOMPLISHED BAND AND DOING A SERIES OF PERFORMANCES IN HERMANUS, BOTRIVIER AND GEORGE (25 – 30 APRIL 2018) Gig details below


Ramon Alexander is the last and youngest of the Cape Jazz disciples – building bridges between the old and the young. Cape Jazz is influenced by Kaapse church music, langarm and folk music. It is the music of the brown people of the Cape – today appreciated by all with an ear for good music, melodies and rhythm. It is a fusion of indigenous sounds mixed with Western and European music flavours and finds its origins form early colonialist times where slavery was rife. Ramon is especially inspired by the father of Cape Jazz, Abdullah Ebrahim. Another important and now exciting influence and collaborator, is that of Cape Jazz and fusion composer and pianist Ibrahim Khalil Shihab. These two composers and pianists will be launching a collaborative album in October 2018.

Alexander has performed at the critically acclaimed international Cape Jazz festival, the Borneo Jazz Festival and the Grahamstown Jazz Festival. He also accompanies various solo artists and has performed with the likes of popular singers such as Anton Goosen, Anna Davel, Mel Botes, Amanda Strydom, Danie Niehaus, Matthys Roets, Zolani Mahola (Freshly Ground), Bobby van Jaarsveld and Francois van Coke, among many.

Ramon Alexander believes in educating the youth and using his teaching abilities to enable young aspiring jazz musicians to learn the Cape Jazz style and often presents workshops for the youth during his tours or performances. He will be including three free workshops for music learners and musicians during the tour.
