Plett Arts Festival 2023

AWAF Hassan'adas with guest Buddy Wells

African Waves Arts Festival presents John Hassan with his band Hassan'adas and guest Buddy Wells on saxophone, for a night in an alternate universe of musical genius.

JOHN HASSAN is one of South African foremost percussionists. He is colourful, modern, versatile and plays the Congos, Bongos, Timbales, Clave, Cajon, Panderio, Shekere, Cowbell and various toys. John has played at festivals all over the world, and African Waves Arts Festival brings him and his band Hassan’adas to Plett Arts, with his guest, Buddy Wells.

John Hassan lives in Cape Town, South Africa where he started his band called HASSAN'ADAS - a loving son, father, brother, a friend to many, a lover of family and a fun band leader.  He is a highly experienced multi-instrumentalist artisan with over three decades in South Africa's top flight music industry. He is self- taught and learnt his craft by listening to the best percussion players from around the globe and trying to emulate them.

He has since worked with a very long list of the most celebrated local and international artists, both in the studio and live concerts. He has travelled extensively locally and word wide with various artists, playing at some of the most prestigious festivals and music events.
