KIM SANDERS & FRIENDS: RHYTHMOLOGY at CAMELOT SEPT 1

.

Kim Sanders & Friends return to Camelot on Sept 1 with a different line-up featuring some old friends. Bassist Mark Szeto has returned from Norway, where he has been working for the last year or so, bringing his own brand of excellence to the bottom end, and there will be two percussionists, Peter Kennard and Chris Fields. “Both these guys are very subtle players”, says Kim. “They are also well-acquainted with all kinds of rhythms – Balkan, Latin, Middle-Eastern, Hindustani classical, South African township jive…It’s gonna be a blast!”
The band will draw from different parts of their extensive repertoire, including Turkish Sufi meditations, crazed ska-jazz, tango, bent Bulgarian and Romani (Gypsy)-style dance grooves and seriously bent originals.

These are musicians who have studied the music at the source. Kim Sanders & Friends is unique.

The line-up is
Kim Sanders: ney, kaval, duduk, gaida, furulya, zaxofon
Llew Kiek: bouzouki, baglama
Mark Szeto: double bass
Peter Kennard: percussion
Chris Fields: percussion
