Keenan Ahrends Trio, featuring Domenic Landolf & Lukas Thoeni

Keenan Ahrends studied jazz guitar at UCT and the Norwegian Academy of Music, also completing an honours degree in performance at Wits, researching the life and music of Errol Dyers. He was selected for the Standard Bank National Youth Jazz Band in 2006 and has toured extensively within South Africa and internationally, performing with many prominent musicians. Ahrends is known for his evocative music writing, his emotive improvisation and his sensitive musicianship, and he has been on a ProHelvetia residency at the Musikerwohnhaus Basel in Switzerland this year, collaborating and developing musical relationships and writing new material inspired by the diverse Swiss music scene. This performance is a product of that opportunity for creative renewal. We appreciate the long-term support and opportunity provided by Swiss funding organisation ProHelvetia and the Bird’s Eye Jazz Club in Basel which made this residency and collaboration possible.
