Ramon Alexander

We are happy to welcome Ramon Alexander to Iluminar Productions. He is one of the last and youngest disciples of Cape Jazz. Not only does he compose, arrange and perform exquisite Cape Jazz music – but he is also a firm believer in exposing the youth to and educating them in Cape Jazz music. In 2018 we will be orchestrating a range of performances for Ramon. It will go hand in hand with workshops aimed at educating young aspiring Jazz students in Cape Jazz. Watch this space.

His first tour will kick off in April. Also look out to some cool initiatives during Youth Month (June 2018).
