Philip Clouts Quartet

About Philip Clouts Quartet

Cape Town-born pianist/composer Clouts’ South African roots have inspired a voyage of discovery that has led to him soaking up the joyful passion of Caribbean calypso, the bluesy melodies of middle eastern praise songs, the exuberant sway of Cuban dance music and the tuneful essence of Gospel while honouring jazz heroes including Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, and Charles Lloyd.

As a key member of the popular London-based world jazz ensemble Zubop and its offshoot ZubopGambia, with BBC World Music award-winner Juldeh Camara, Clouts created a solid body of work with African roots and since forming his quartet in 2006 he has continued to explore world music interests, including the Gnawa tradition and pan-European folksong, to create compositions with strong themes and a mighty rhythmical punch.

Joined by rising star saxophonist Samuel Eagles, bassist Tim Fairhall and drummer Kiran Bhatt, he brings his musical journey alive with superb musicianship and infectious vigour.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Philip Clouts Quartet are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
