Friday 4 August at Cathedral of Thorns
Singer Léah Kline joins
at Cedric Dandaré & Curajazzstars
WILLEMSTAD – During the upcoming ‘Cathedral of Thorns by Night’ on Friday, August 4, the jazz formation Cedric Dandaré & Curajazzstars will perform with another special guest, namely the world-renowned American jazz singer Leah Kline, who is temporarily on the island.
Every month, a cultural musical event takes place one evening at Doornen Cathedral, where its founder, Herman van Bergen, gives an exclusive tour to guests.
For Friday August 4 from 8 pm, guitarist and bandleader Cedric Dandaré will perform with a formation that also consists of Eric Calmes on bass, Dennis Aalse on trumpet, Chris Wallé on keyboards, Lonte Conradus behind the drums, and both Ernie Gregorius and Tshepho Seshaba on percussion. Cedric Dandaré is considered a pioneer who has managed to combine Curaçao music with jazz with great international success. For years he has been active as a music teacher on his native island and occasionally performs on special occasions or in the studio, often with fellow local musicians.
For this occasion, he was brought into contact with the singer Léah Kline, who is temporarily staying on the island and occasionally performs songs with local formations. Kline is an American who has wandered the world after a dance education. Amsterdam has been its home port since the turn of the century. There she participated in many musicals and she also emerged as a jazz singer. She has already made a name for herself in the Netherlands, Germany and France. Now there is a distinct opportunity to show her skills to the Curaçao public.
Due to the limited capacity of the location, it is useful to buy tickets in good time at ANG. 49 (USD 28) per person. These are available at The Zumpiña Shop (next to restaurant Number Ten), bookstore Mensing’s Caminada and Landhuis Bloemhof. If left, also on August 4 from 19:00 at the door.
