Our first taxijam for 2009!
Yes we have been a bit lazy! I realized this when I noticed that the last TJ we did was Ian Henderson in November last year!
But this next Taxijam is the reason we do this – We received a message via the Cape Town bush Telegraph that a certain “Yoav Sadan” was back in his home town of Cape Town after a 10 year hiatus abroad – Not being entirely familiar with his music we thought it best to run a little check on google before we contacted him, just so we knew who we were dealing with….. and 24 100 pages later I managed to glean the following:
YOAV has had a number 1 in Denmark – gone platinum in Russia and played live on Jools Hollands show in the UK sharing a stage with Tricky, Jimmy Cliff and countless other big names.
He supported Tori Amos on her US Tour (over 40 Shows)
He is represented in both the US and UK by major labels..
YOAV is probably one of our most successful musicians internationally and Musica currently don’t stock his CDS?! – go figure!
He also surfed with Neil Finn from crowded house of the coast of Ireland….
And he is stupendously talented and an all round upstanding fella
So I was pretty stoked when YOAV performed 3 numbers for us while we drove around Signal Hill on a balmy Friday evening dodging tourists and Tour buses, and we watched mesmerized as he wove a musical tapestry using a combination of strumming, picking and percussion – all generated from his guitar…..
This will blow you away…….
