A group of musicians have teamed up to present a musical extravaganza. The collective plurism, led by Dominic Egli, a drummer and collector of sounds, presents More Fufu! in Bloemfontein on 4 July.

The event, in the form of a workshop, will be staged at the Odeion School of Music.

This initiative is part of the musicians’ tour, which will see them criss-crossing South Africa.

The team is made up of Egli (drums), Feya Faku (horns), Christoph Irniger (saxophone) and Raffael Bossard (bass).

The tour follows the collective’s two releases, Untitled Yet and Fufu Tryout.

More Fufu! is the third album. The collective describes the album as a colourful declaration of love to the African continent, its food and its music.

Plurism explores the realm of an imaginary African folklore and puts it in the context of the contemporary jazz idiom.

With the line-up of Irniger, Bossard and Faku, Egli promises song-like melodies, complex and driving grooves and eruptive solos.

The tour begins in Johannesburg at the Afrikan Freedom Station.

It then moves to Bloemfontein for a workshop and performance at the Odeion School of Music.

The project will then head to Grahamstown for two performances at the Standard Bank Jazz Festival.

The tour concludes in Cape Town, with performances at the Alliance Française and Guga S’thebe.

Tickets to the event cost R120. Book at http://qkt.io/kPJ1BE.
