Concert: Hilton Schilder and the Iconoclast

Reunion of Iconoclast with the jazz legend from the Cape of Good Hope

Portrait of Hilton Schilder in front of Table Mountain

Full wind instruments with the rousing goemabeat of Cape Town’s carnival are the trademarks of this outstanding band, which was founded in 2008 during a guest stay of the pianist in collaboration with the jazz campus Basel and delighted everybody. We are looking forward to this exhilarating re-encounter with the fabulous South African musician and his co-musicians, who are in the meantime well established.
