Confluence – A Cross Continental Musical Collaboration 

Live performance at the Blah Blah Bar, 84 Kloof St, Gardens, Cape Town
Sunday 13th August. 
8pm, R100 cover. 
An evening of spontaneity and improvisation, bringing together musicians from Indiana University (US) and Cape Town (SA). This musical adventure concludes the weeks events for the 2017 annual meeting of the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes (CHCI), hosted by the Centre for Humanities Research at UWC. This years theme: Humanities Improvised, invokes the creative energy of such artistic forms as jazz, cinema, or the visual arts, as indispensable to rethinking the most pressing questions of our time. The annual meeting aims to gather together artists, art commentators, and humanists from member institutions to reconceptualize the relationship between art and the humanities against the backdrop of a rapidly changing world. More info: http://www.chrflagship.uwc.ac.za/chci-annual-meeting_-the-humanities-improvised/
The performance will include improvisations and explorative detours around known jazz standards as well as South African compositions. The ensemble features:
Jonathan Elmer: Trombone (US)
Jamaal Baptiste: Piano (US)
Patrick Harbison: Trumpet (US)
Shane Cooper: Bass (SA)
Jonno Sweetman: Drums (SA)
Reza Khota: Guitar (SA)

The trio was brought together by Edge of Wrong and formed in 2013 after a recording session in Oslo, Norway in Christian Blandhoels Tiny Recording Studio. The recording was released on cassette the following year on the Belgian label Silken Tofu.
