Excellent Jazz on the Edge of the World 


Every two weeks on Saturday Evening your hosts Hein and Cyrille organise an informal yet high class music event in Zensa's Voorkamer.

** NEXT CONCERT: SEPTEMBER 19, 2015. Special guest: The Wonderful Dave Ledbetter

Every concert has its own signature; often they invite one of the top Cape Town based instrumentalist or the evening revolves around a theme in word or poetry. An intimate evening where guests enjoy listening to music from Hein's formidable Jazz Vinyl Collection, a cup of delicious soup, bread from our own bakery a glass of wine and good company! 



Hein has been traveling the world as one of Europe’s leading bassists. He performed and recorded with legends like Chet Baker and Toots Thielemans. But the list of musicians he associated with can easily be a who-of-who of jazz. Besides this performing career, Hein has taught extensively; headed the jazz department at the Rotterdam conservatory and has been writing educational books on the bass for several years now. Hein is currently teaching one day per week at the university of Cape Town.


Cyrille Carreon was born in the Philippines, but moved to the Netherlands at an early age. Her parents had traveled the world, being musicians/dancers themselves, so it is not surprising Cyrille had a career on stage. She has recorded several albums under her own name. For ten years she was active in musical theater as a singer, dancer and actress. Words are her passion and occasionally Cyrille opens up her little book with favorite poems or recite from her own work.
