Following his first ever London show right here at the Vortex in May, we’re thrilled to welcome back this formidable young talent. Tonight Dyer will be joined by an equally exciting group of UK musicians.
Botswana-born pianist Bokani Dyer has recorded two alums under his own name. Debut album ‘Mirrors’ was released in 2010 and provides a strong indication of the style and artistic trajectory Dyer continues to pursue. ‘Emancipate The Story’ (2011), is a recording made possible by the Standard Bank as part of the jazz Young Artist award. He took first prize in SAMRO Overseas Scholarship Competition in August 2013.
