PLAYDATE: Jim Gorissen & Friends

15 August 2014, 6pm  -  15 August 2014, 11pm

Dutch Rhythm guitarist Jim Gorissen & Friends play at the KZNSA 

Jim Gorissen began playing the guitar and arranging music as a boy of thirteen. He focuses mainly on The Latin American Music and is always on a search for the jazz element in this style. Brazilian music with its rhythmic drive and swing also gets his attention. The syncopated rhythm patterns of the Samba , the Bossa Nova and the modern Partido alto appeals to him most of all. "Rhythm" as a driving force in the World Music as a whole keeps fascinating him. It was inevitable that also Flamenco became one of his big inspirations!

In Durban Jim brings you jazz with Latin and Flamenco inlfuences. Joining Jim on stage are some of Durban's finest musicians: Mike Mazzoni and Paki Peloeole on drums, Ildo Nandja on bass, Richard Ellis on percussion and Shemual Mahabeer on keys.

On vocals Jim will be joined by Thulile Zama and Shomon Daniel.
