A multi-award-winning saxophonist and composer, Ivan Mazuze is originally from Mozambique but lives in Norway, where he works as a musician-composer, collaborating on various projects including jazz, folk and traditional music. His compositions are also inspired by traditional African music with the result of an unmistakable sound, one of the best current expressions of world jazz. With at its base a strong harmonic root and a solid rhythmic section, its improvisation moves easily between jazz and African urban sounds. Mazuze is an energetic and compelling musician, each of his particular melodic riffs is simply irresistible; sophisticated expression of the ‘joie de vivre musicale’.
