Artist Biographies:

"Louis Tebogo Moholo (born 10 March 1940), is a South African jazz drummer.

Born in Cape Town, Moholo formed The Blue Notes with Chris McGregor, Johnny Dyani, Nikele Moyake, Mongezi Feza and Dudu Pukwana, and emigrated to Europe with them in 1964, eventually settling in London, where he formed part of a South African exile community that made an important contribution to British jazz. He was a member of the Brotherhood of Breath, a big band comprising several South African exiles and leading musicians of the British free jazz scene in the 1970s and is the founder of Viva la Black and The Dedication Orchestra. His first album under his own name, Spirits Rejoice on Ogun Records, is considered a classic example of the combination of British and South African players. In the early 1970s, Moholo was also a member of the afro-rock band Assagai.

He has played with many musicians, including Derek Bailey, Steve Lacy, Evan Parker, Enrico Rava, Roswell Rudd, Irène Schweizer, Cecil Taylor, John Tchicai, Archie Shepp, Peter Brötzmann, Mike Osborne, Keith Tippett, Elton Dean and Harry Miller.

Moholo returned to South Africa in September 2005, performing with George Lewis at the UNYAZI Festival of Electronic Music in Johannesburg. He now goes under the name Louis Moholo-Moholo because the name is more ethnically authentic. South African promoter Slow Life in March 2017 at the Olympia Bakery in Kalk Bay, Cape Town produced a show where Louis performed along with Mark Fransman, Reza Khota, Keenan Ahrends and Brydon Bolton."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Live in Harlem was recorded at Big Apple Jazzspace on a warm Sunday, June 17, 2007. The synchronicity of Kali's duets with the great South African drummer Louis Moholo-Moholo is amazing. The last time they had played together was in the 70s with Don Rafael Garrett and others in Amsterdam. This spontaneous music shines with abundant energy and momentum flowing freely from these 2 Piscean musicians. Louis' smooth and inventive play with time perfectly complements Kali's contouring sleek waves of sound. Here Kali. Z. plays mizmar, piano harp & keys, nai flute, voice, violin and soprano sax.

"Live in the Alps" was recorded at the Uncool Festival of Jazz, Improvised Planetary and Cosmo Music at La Prese, Switzerland in a lovely outdoor setting by a mountain lake, on May 6, 2005. This splendid concert displays the excellent talents of Kali's longtime collaborator, pianist Bobby Few, plus spirited drummer Steve McCraven and bassist Wayne Dockery, both mainstays of Archie Shepp's Europe-based bands. Here Kali. Z. plays soprano sax, nai flute, voice, & drum set."-Flying Note
