Botswana-born pianist Bokani Dyer has recorded two albums under his own name. Debut album ‘Mirrors’ was released in 2010 and provides a strong indication of the style and artistic trajectory Dyer continues to pursue. ‘Emancipate The Story’ (2011), is a recording made possible by the Standard Bank as part of the jazz Young Artist award. He took first prize in SAMRO Overseas Scholarship Competition in August 2013.
His trio will play selections from his most recent album 'Neo Native'.
