HAMPTONS JAZZ FEST: BAKITHI KUMALO WITH FRIENDS
Gates open @ 7 PM, concert to start @ 8 PM
Join Southampton Arts Center and Hamptons Jazz Fest as we present Bakithi Kumalo & Friends for an evening of jazz! Concert will begin at 7 PM.
Bakithi Kumalo, legendary Grammy-Award winning bass play for Paul Simon, was born into the Soweto Township of Johannesburg and surrounded by music and performance. He worked as a session musician in South Africa during the 1970s and early 1980s, eventually becoming a top session bassist and accompanying international performers. Kumalo creates a singular electric fretless bass sound teeming with double stops that sound like human voices and the African grooves of his homeland. In additional to touring with Paul Simon, Kumalo has recorded and/or toured with Gloria Estefan, Derrick Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, Chico Ceaser, Laurie Anderson, Gerald Albright, Miriam Makeba, Randy Brecker, Grover Washington Jr., Bob James, Angelique Kidjo, Jon Secada, Josh Groban, and Chris Botti.
