    One of the great jazz drummers, praised for his free style and unmistakable drive. ‘The great South African drummer’s fires still burn brightly’ (The Guardian).


    Louis Moholo-Moholo is one of the great drummers of jazz, a pioneer of free improvisation with an unmistakable drive and a uniquely distinctive style. In 2005 he returned to his native South Africa, after living in London for decades. In Five Blokes he plays with rising stars of new British jazz including saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings (Sons of Kemet, The Comet is Coming) and pianist Alexander Hawkins, who previously collaborated with Mulatu Astatke and Joe McPhee.

    Louis Moholo (the doubling of his last name followed later) made the scene in Europe after he moved to London in 1964 with the legendary Blue Notes. This band gave a new impulse to jazz and improvised music with influences of catchy songs from the South-African townships. Moholo has performed at the Bimhuis many times in the past, for example with Amsterdam players such as Sean Bergin and the ICP musicians.

    ‘It’s impossible to replicate the intensity and near overwhelming beauty of seeing the band live’ (The Quietus).

    Irene Schweizer & Louis Moholo Moholo - Unlimited #29, Schlachthof, Wels, Austria, 2015-11-06

    Man muss schon einige Zeit zurückdenken, um sich der historischen Dimensionen des Schaffens von Irène
    Schweizer bewusst zu werden. Zum Beispiel in die frühen 1960er-Jahre, als man sie in Zürich noch ungestraft als „Fräulein
    Schweizer“ ankündigen durfte. Ein wesentliches Ereignis für Irène Schweizer war 1959 die Eröffnung des Jazzclubs Africana in Zürich. Duke Ellington lernte dort
    angeblich Dollar Brand kennen. Und ebendort ist praktisch die ganze Riege der später weltweit erfolgreichen afrikanischen Musiker
    aufgetreten: Chris McGregor, Nikele Moyake, Dudu Pukwana, Johnny Dyani, Mongezi Feza und eben der Schlagzeuger Louis Moholo.
    Irène Schweizer war immer mehr als nur dabei, immer mittendrin im Geschehen, immer am Suchen, am Staunen, am Entdecken,
    gleichermaßen fasziniert wie bereichert von neuen Klängen. Und sie engagierte sich aktiv in der Anti-Apartheid-Bewegung.
    Das Sich-Befreien von herkömmlichen Mustern und Gewohnheiten sollte fortan ein wesentliches Merkmal von Irène Schweizer sein, eine Eigenschaft, die ihr bis heute wichtig ist. Ab Mitte der 1960er-
    Jahre wurden zunehmend Harmonien, Rhythmen und gewohnte Abläufe aufgelöst – Thema, Solo, Variation, Thema: kein Thema
    mehr. Pierre Favre, Peter Kowald, Evan Parker und Cecil Taylor waren prägende Bekanntschaften in dieser Zeit. Etwas später auch
    die Feminist Improvising Group mit Lindsay Cooper und Maggie Nicols, ihr Engagement in der Frauenbewegung – politische und
    künstlerische Aktivität wollte nicht getrennt werden. Ihre Arbeit in Duos und hier vor allem mit Schlagzeugern bleibt
    aber bis heute wesentlich, ob mit Pierre Favre, Han Bennink, Andrew Cyrille, Hamid Drake und eben heute hier und jetzt mit Louis
    Moholo.
    Louis Moholo-Moholo (gedoppelt, weil dieser Name ethnisch authentischer sei) war 1964 als Mitglied von Chris McGregors Blue
    Notes zum Jazzfestival nach Antibes eingladen. Die gesamte Band emigrierte, ließ sich zuerst in Frankreich und später in der Schweiz
    nieder. Von dort aus ging die Reise weiter nach England, wo sich die Musiker schließlich eine neue Heimat fanden, die sich musikalisch
    in großer Verbundenheit mit dem Label Ogun ausdrückte. Moholo-Moholo spielte u. a. mit Brotherhood of Breath, Steve
    Lacy, Cecil Taylor, Roswell Rudd, Archie Shepp, Peter Brötzmann, Harry Miller, Evan Parker, Keith Tippett und immer wieder mit Irène
    Schweizer. 2005 kehrte er nach Südafrika zurück und lebt heute wieder in Kapstadt.
