The young bassist from South Africa is artist in residence at the Musikerwohnhaus Basel.
Benjamin Jeptha is one of South Africa's most sought-after bassists - in his current project, he explores the experiences of the population group known as "Colored" in the Western Cape and reinterprets their musical heritage. With his sensitive fellow musicians from Switzerland, he combines Cape Jazz, the Goema beat of the Cape Town Carnival, Marabi and new South African music styles such as Gqom (House), Kwaito and Hip-Hop.
