IVAN MAZUZE (Mozambique)


The Multi Awarded saxophonist and composer from Mozambique,  presents groovy up tempo & progressive African Jazz, swinging with the Marabenta styled polyrhythms from his homeland and  mixed with modern Neo Nordic solo, performed by his Norwegian band members.

Deeply rooted in South African Jazz his melodic tunes are backed by a powerful rhythm section consisting of electric bass, guitar and acoustic piano as pillars, giving space for the improvisations creating a landscape that moves between Jazz and the African urban soundscape.

”Ivan Mazuze personifies generosity of spirit on this album. There is a kind of benevolence and compassion about his work that lifts you, makes you smile and feel good inside. In the words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Music is the universal language of mankind”. - David Fischel
