Ababhemu Quartet | Nduduzo Makhathini & Karl-Martin

South African, Blue Note-signed pianist Nduduzo Makhathini and Swedish saxophonist Karl-Martin Almqvist found each other in 2014 and formed the quartet Ababhemu Quartet with Norwegian bassist Magne Thormodsæter and South African drummer Ayanda Sikade. They play jazz rooted in a South African tradition with American 1960s influences in the tracks of MCoy Tyner and John Coltrane.

Their first performance took place at the Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival 2022 and we captured the magical live act on film.

The concert was recorded at Ystad Theater on August 6, 2022.
