Guitarist Lionel Loueke has enjoyed a meteoric rise in the jazz world, collaborating with seminal jazz figures including Wayne Shorter, Esperanza Spalding and Herbie Hancock, who has praised Loueke as “a musical painter”.
Sydney’s The Vampires are renowned for their blend of soulful jazz, old-school reggae, exotic Balkan melodies and all-out funk-laden Afrobeat. Their risk-taking improvisational style and exhilarating interplay meet Loueke’s musical mastery and deep knowledge of African folk forms in a must-see collaboration.
