American Steelpan master, Andy Narell, returns to South Africa for ONE NIGHT WITH ANDY NARELL at The Bassline in Johannesburg on Friday 5 August 2016.
Narell first performed in South Africa in 1999 at the Arts Alive Festival in Johannesburg and has garnered a massive SA Following. Narell fell in love with the country immediately and returned for various shows over the following 17 years. For the past two years he has been adjudicating at the International Marimba Festival - the biggest and most wonderful marimba festival in the world. This year they had 1600 performers in three age categories – primary school, secondary school, and open. Two days of joyous performances featuring marimba ensembles, pan, percussion, singing, and dancing. The groups came from all over South Africa, Swazliand, Zimbabwe, and even a steel band from Nigeria.
With his first solo album in 1979 Andy Narell took the steelpan out of the steelband and brought it into the jazz band, and with every recording and concert since, he has explored the possibilities and expanded the role of the steelpan in contemporary music.
