In collaboration with Music Meeting, and exclusively for Festival Jazz International (Rotterdam and Nijmegen), the Nigerian singer and guitarist Adedeji Adetayo is presenting his new septet of international musicians. A “dream team”, as he calls it himself, full of new friends and familiar faces.
The line-up includes the Cameroon bass player Benson Itoe, with whom he studied in Groningen, and he’s already played with keyboard player Robin van Geerke in Fra Fra Sound. Other notable names in this septet assembled by Adetayo are drummer Yoran Vroom (an old friend of his) and the young, talented Ghanaian trumpet player Peter Somuah (currently making a name for himself on the Rotterdam jazz scene).
There’s lots more to tell about this remarkable line-up, but the best thing to do is experience this exciting fusion of African music, pop and jazz for yourself!
