A group of talented musicians have teamed up to make this production. This uniquely designed music show is set in the 60s and portrays the story of an impassioned spirit who leaves South Africa due to racial segregation and travels to the New York City. Alongside a few brilliant actors such as Christiaan Schoombie and Atandwa Kani, world famous violinist Daniel Hope, percussionist Jason Marsalis, cellist Vincent Segal and a noted authority from South Africa Andrew Tracey will be working together to keep the audience hooked till the end.
The five times Echo Klassik Award winner, Daniel Hope, who plays the vintage 1737 Guarneri violin is soon going to give a fabulous performance on stage. Playing the instrument from a very young age, Daniel Hope has released a variety of albums having both original and cover compositions. Some of them include Olivier Messiaen, Spheres, Terezin Theresienstadt and Bach. Apart from playing at music events, Daniel also teaches music to the students at the Royal Academy of Music, in England.
Accompanying him during A Distant Drum will be the NEA Jazz Masters Award winner, Jason Marsalis. He has played the drums and percussion with many renowned musicians. He gave his first professional performance at the age of twelve. His father, Ellis Louis Marsalis Jr. was a pianist and a music professor while his siblings are popular jazz musicians. Jason Marsalis inherited the virtuosity and compositional skills of the Marsalis family. With time, he has developed a distinctive, polyrhythmic style which has earned him a lot of critical acclaim. After listening to his album, Music Update, a writer from The New York Times praised his music approach by saying, “an excellent musician trying out something risky without embarrassment.”
