Louis Moholo-Moholo

Louis Moholo born in Cape Town, South Africa, knew from a very early age that he wanted to play the drums. After working with many groups, and being awarded The Best Drummer of the Jabulani Festival 1964, he had already met up with, now known as the “stars” of those days, Dudu Pukwana, Mongezi Feza, Nick Moyake, Chris McGregor, and Johnny Dyani, with whom a journey of escape and development was about to begin. The Blue Notes after playing around SA, just escaping the forces of the Apartheid, were invited to the Antibes Jazz Festival in 1964, and after playing in festivals / clubs around Europe finally arrived in England in 1965. The music scene was knocked sideways with their stimulating rhythms and songs which influenced the jazz and improvised music scene in Europe which was also establishing its own identity at this time.
