The hall of the Ilhom Theater has hosted the creative evening within the training program ‘Jazz improvisation as a form of self-expression.’ This time the guest was the vocalist and drummer Hansley Poinen.

Many people of different generations visited the creative evening with the aim to plunge into the world of jazz and to communicate with an ingenious musician. The meeting itself was held within the Ilhom Jazz Club project, the tasks of which are exceptionally creative – holding monthly jazz evenings, master classes and workshops, as well as performances by musicians from the CIS countries, Europe and the USA.

The author and producer of the initiative was the graduate of the State Conservatory, soloist of the Bоtir Zokirov State Jazz Orchestra Saidmurat Muratov.

“Ilhom Jazz Club has existed for three years. We hold various creative meetings with musicians, as well as jazz evenings. The main goal of the project is the distribution of live music, and not only jazz, but improvisational,” Saidmurat Muratov opined. “I managed to work with Hansley, he is a cheerful, kind and sympathetic person, and he charges people with positive energy. As the musician himself shared with me, for him today’s master class was the first, which made him even worried.”

Born in Quatre Bornes, the Republic of Mauritius, Hansley, from childhood, all the time knocked on some kind of boxes. Even then he was sure that he would definitely become a musician. In recent years, he settled down in the capital of our republic.

“I believe that music is something that you need to share with others, because it makes people experience sublime emotions. In addition, this is a certain experience for the musician: the more the performer performs, the more experienced he becomes,” Hansley Poinen believes. “This is my first master class. However, my life credo is to teach drumming.”

Hansley not only shared his theoretical knowledge, but also confirmed all that was said in practice, more precisely, on the drum set. Besides, he performed several songs in a foreign language, although several years ago he did not even sing. When asked if the singer is going to sing in Russian and Uzbek, he answered that he really wants to learn them and competently speak to them, and then he will gladly gladden his listeners.

“I hope that all the recommendations that I have shared with musicians and spectators today will be of use to them. I want to believe that after today’s master class the musicians will play better, and listeners will understand the jazz more deeply,” Hansley Poinen emphasized.
