Johanes Radianto will bring to stage the full scope of his journey through life with music. He will be accompanied by Kevin Yosua, a bass player well known in the jazz world, and Elfa Zulham, another great and widely recognized jazz player who has been close friends with Johanes since their time in the Netherlands.

Johanes has a very thick traditional jazz background, and his music brings forth that sense of tradition with a twist of modernity. Through a very well planned repertoire consisting of jazz standards and some of their own composition, the trio is looking forward to sharing their joy of playing music with the audience.

Dear friends all around the world,

I see that people from Algeria, Kenya, South Africa, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Mexico, Honduras,… and so many other countries are looking at this blog to discover new jazz clubs. If you know some good places, hidden, small, big, well known or new ones, share your knowledge with us ! To be on the list, the jazz club you propose has first of all to respect musicians, because they are the soul of jazz, most of the time they dedicate their life to this music. Then… this jazz club, even if it’s a modest one, has to deliver a high quality of music. Last but not least, the public must feel like home.

When you indicate some venues,  I send some of my friends (spies 🙂 ) in these jazz clubs to see if the quality is there. If it’s OK, I add these new names on the lists.

It’s time to promote jazz of your country, city or jazz clubs of friends!
