"Again and again [...] Galgut stages intimate dramas that have the force of ancient myth.” - Wall Street Journal
A modern family saga that could only have come from South Africa, written in gorgeous prose by Booker Prize winner Damon Galgut. Haunted by an unmet promise, the Swart family loses touch after the death of their matriarch. Adrift, the lives of the three siblings move separately through the uncharted waters of South Africa. Reunited by four funerals over three decades, the dwindling family reflects the atmosphere of its country, one of resentment, renewal, and, ultimately, hope. The Promise is an epic drama that unfurls against the unrelenting march of national history.

The first jazz night of 2022 features no less than an effervescent harpist and a passionate drummer: Pia Salvia (harp & vocals) and Noam Israeli (drums).
Pia's repertoire is a mix of personal compositions from her latest album "Blissful Sigh" and different arrangements, fusing pop and world music, all imbued with a jazz flavour. She is accompanied by New York-based drummer, educator and producer Noam Israeli from Israel. The performance features the harp combined with voice and percussions, emphasising the various textures and emotions that this instrument can create.
An exceptional duo for an evening filled with great live music and fabulous atmosphere. Join us!
