Kesivan and the Lights

Zankel Hall
Kesivan Naidoo is one of the exciting leaders of the next wave of Cape jazz performers. A composer and drummer, Naidoo leads a fiery quintet that is equally exciting when playing a standard or an original composition, or covering an Ornette Coleman tune. Kesivan and the Lights make their New York debut in this concert.
