with LIONEL LOUEKE TRIO

Jazz icon Herbie Hancock has called Benin-born guitarist Lionel Louekea “musical painter.” Loueke’s fluid guitar playing—inspired by African and traditional jazz—was one of the highlights of Angélique Kidjo’s sensational Remain in Light concert in 2017. Loueke and his trio, along with special guest Brazilian percussion superstar Cyro Baptista, honor Kidjo in a concert that both celebrates and reinvents many of her marvelous songs.

John Zorn's Cobra

Cyro with John Zorn

Led by John Zorn, a super group with the crème de la crème of the American improvisation scene starts with Cobra, the famous 'game piece' that Zorn already worked out in 1984. On the basis of cues on cards and other rules, improvising musicians receive instructions from the leader ('prompter') to jointly form a piece of music. No version of Cobra sounds the same. The eleven-membered Cobra elite corps that 'prompter' Zorn takes to 's-Hertogenbosch is already poking their ears.
