Jhb Trio

Reza Khota Trio (Jhb)

This Jhb based trio is a collaboration between guitarist Reza Khota, drummer Tumi Mogorosi, and bassist Ariel Zamonsky. All three are established composers/artists in their own right, stretching SA music into the future while tapping into traces of our collective cultural histories. Ranging from influences of rock/jazz of the 70’s, black sonic, Indian classical and spiritual jazz, the band draws these references into a gritty urban Jhb sound that reflects on complex city life verging on the dystopian. The dynamic conversation of a trio with its counterpoint and space is explored through an analogue coalescence of overdriven guitar with acoustic drums and double bass.
