Djabe hits the road once again with the legendary Genesis guitarist, Steve Hackett.
Djabe, under its 21-year life received numerous awards and recognitions, both national and international, and performed in 42 countries world-wide. They played with a lot of international guest musicians during their career. One paramount star is Steve Hackett, guitarist of Genesis, with whom they worked together continuously since 2003. Steve first appeared on Djabe’s album ’Sheafs are dancing’, and gave their first joint concert in London, 2004. Since 2007 they have a short tour together somewhere in the world every year. Malaysia, Bosnia, Austria, Slovenia, Netherlands, Latvia, Croatia, Slovakia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Russia and Hungary are only some of the more memorable gig locations. In Romania, at Garana Jazz Festival they played for a crowd of 13 000.
While Djabe became known as the no.1. Hungarian Jazz/World fusion band, their special project with Steve Hackett goes further and takes adventures into the genre of progressive rock. They play Genesis, Steve Hackett and Djabe compositions in equivalent quantity. Recurring peaks of these joint gigs are the Peter Gabriel-era Genesis pieces ‘Firth of Fifth’ or the Phil Collins-era ‘Los Endos’. However, Steve Hackett fits into Djabe pieces very well: they released numerous albums together and co-starred on each other’s albums, also.
