Bojan Z, piano
According to the press release, Bojan Z (Z for Zulfikarpašić) is one of the most prominent, acclaimed and multi-awarded European jazz pianists today. Proof of that is his latest album Soul Shelter for which he was awarded the Victoire du Jazz for Best Jazz Artist in 2012. Tracks from this album and his sophomore effort Solobsession will comprise his playlist for his Asian Tour. What interests me most about his upcoming performance is whether he will bring with him his Xenophone, a modified Fender which is his own invention. It is said that its sound is reminiscent of Bojan Z’s Balkan origins.
After what seemed like forever, I am very pleased that FrancoPhil is back for 2013. I’ve attended quite a handful of FrancoPhil events back in 2012 like the Songs and Symphony with the PPO, Elektro Kif by Bianca Li Company, Fête dela Musique 2012 featuring Chinese Man and DUO Modern Circus. And I do hope that I’ll be able to watch whatever FrancoPhil has lined up this year.
The Bojan Z concert is organized by the the Embassy of France to the Philippines, the Alliance Française de Manille and L’Oréal Professionnel with the support of the Philippine International Jazz Festival, the Ayala Museum, LYRIC and the Picasso, Boutique Serviced Residences.
