The JazzLab

Witness an icon of jazz drumming.

Pheeroan akLaff is an icon of jazz and avant-garde drumming, having worked with an extraordinary list of artists over the past 50 years including Ravi Coltrane, Anthony Braxton, Wadada Leo Smith and Oliver Lake.

In a very special international collaboration featuring Sunny Kim (voice) and Australian jazz heavyweights Mike Nock (piano), Peter Farrar (saxophone) and Helen Svoboda (bass), audiences will experience the immensity of akLaff’s deeply creative approach to the drum set. With hypnotic messaging and thoughtful banter, akLaff’s live performances showcase the healing and regenerative nature of drumming that has the power to transform communities worldwide.
