2012 Tour Dates

Please note that this is an unofficial itinerary. While I make the best effort possible to ensure the accuracy of this information, always confirm with the venue in advance to determine if the concert is scheduled.

The Syndicate

The Syndicate was formed by several members of the Zawinul Syndicate to carry on Joe’s legacy. It originally featured four members of the final edition of the Zawinul Syndicate: Drummer Paco Sery, percussionist/vocalist Aziz Sahmaoui, percussionist Jorge Bezerra, and guitarist Alegre Corrêa, who has since been replaced by Munir Hossn. Additional members are Aloune Wade on bass, Emile Parisien on sax, and Thierry Eliez on keyboards. Former Zawinul Syndicate vocalist Sabine Kabongo is a frequent guest.
