There’s an exciting Japanese flavour of jazz and drumming coming to Cape Town when world-renowned Japanese jazz trumpeter Terumasa Hino, accompanied by his Quintet and the female Japanese Taiko drumming group Himiko visit the city.
After performing in Johannesburg they will be at the Cape Town International Conference Centre on Monday 3 October.
These events seek to promote cultural understanding between South Africa and Japan through music and Japanese culture. Hino started playing the trumpet when he was nine and started his professional career in a dance band in a US Army camp. He released his first album Alone, Alone and Alone in 1967, followed by a string of acclaimed albums. In the mid ’70s he moved to the United States where he performed and collaborated with some of the renowned jazz musicians, including pianist Gil Evans. In 1989 he became the first Japanese artist to sign with the prestigious American jazz record label Blue Note Records, releasing albums including his first successful album titled Blue Struck.
In 1991, he composed Free Mandela inspired by the release of Nelson Mandela. This musician has always pushed the boundaries of jazz. More recently he has been pouring his energy into charity work and fostering young musicians.
The female drumming Taiko group Himiko was formed in 1990 and owes its name to the mysterious empress Himiko who ruled the Yamatai Kingdom in ancient Japan. The group creates an unprecedented world of drumming by adding elegance and glamour to their powerful and dynamic drum sound. Himiko have performed in countries all over the world.

Ticket prices are at R60 and R100 and are available at Computicket.
