In response to the developing coronavirus situation in the UK, Exeter Phoenix is currently closed to the public. This is a temporary measure and we are taking this on a month-by-month basis. No events will be taking place during March, and the vast majority of events will be rescheduled for later in the year. We are following government advice and acting in the best interests of our visitors and staff.
Unprecedented closures like this with no confirmed government support will be hugely damaging for charities like Exeter Phoenix and many other sectors. If you are in a position to consider making a donation HERE, we would be extremely grateful.
As a precautionary measure, Fougou Music have made the unfortunate decision to cancel this event. Refunds will be sent in due course to ticket holders.
As it stands, all other events at Exeter Phoenix are going ahead as planned. Please be assured that we are closely monitoring the situation and will take all appropriate action to ensure the safety of customers, staff and our community. We are responding to this developing situation in line with the latest government public health guidance.
The dazzlingly impressive Senagalese jazz pianist Ibou Tall takes the classic sounds of piano standards but there is no denying his African influences. He brings a rich and rhythmic Afro jazz fusion to original material and well known tunes. A night of “Senjazz” which is a musical concept inspired by the very rich Afro rhythms, sounds and culture from Ibou’s Senegalese roots, as well as the infinite world of jazz.
Ibou Tall was born in Dakar, Senegal. He joined singer Alioune Mbaye Nder’s band Le Setsima Group as a composer and band leader, leading to the release of 10 albums. Ibou Tall has performed at jazz and world music venues and festivals across UK, Europe, Scandinavia and North America.
The line up includes the French musicians Julien Alenda on sax and Guillaume Ottaviani on bass, British guitarist Martin Sean McConnell, and the exciting Italian drummer Paolo Adamo.
