Synth wizard James Holden teams up with celebrated Polish clarinet guru Waclaw Zimpel.

Both have had the privilege of immersing themselves in the rich Gnawa musical tradition carried down via Morocco’s Guinia family. Synth wizard James Holden’s collaborative streak continues apace as he teams up with celebrated Polish clarinet guru Waclaw Zimpel.

Both have had the privilege of immersing themselves in the rich Gnawa musical tradition carried down via Morocco’s Guinia family, with Holden recording first with the late Maalem Mahmoud Guinia and later his son Houssam, whilst in 2012 and again in 2015 Zimpel improvised his way around Poland in a live collaboration

with Mahmoud’s younger brother Mokhtar.

Having publicly debuted their collaboration in a live performance at Poland’s Unsound Festival in at the end of 2019 Holden & Zimpel will now repeat the improvisational experiment for this intimate show at The Jazz Cafe.
