Polyphonic, polyrhythmic, polyethnic, polyvocal – if jazz is all of these, then İlhan Ersahin is the genre’s premier polymath.Growing up in Stockholm, Ersahin studied in Boston, moved to New York, founded the club Nublu, recorded with Turkish musicians, collaborated with spoken word performers, directed Istanbul jazz festivals, and opened a second Nublu club in Istanbul.Along the way, he created his own brand of intercultural, cross-genre jazz that electrified the New York scene, bringing the disparate crowds of bebop and hip-hop to the same dance floor.We can't wait to welcome him to Jazz Cafe for his debut show here on Monday 24th April.Joining him is fast rising Turkish DJ Debora Ipekel, who provides records behind the counter at the legendary Sounds of The Universe and hosts regular shows at Worldwide FM and has guested on Red Light Radio.
