 If you’ve been to any of the five last Global Investigative Journalism Conferences, chances are you’ve seen GIJN’s own band, The Muckrakers. Formed at a jam at the Lillehammer conference in 2008, the R&B group has gone on to play to packed crowds from around the world in Geneva, Kiev, and Rio, plus a rockin’ reunion at GIJC15 back in Lillehammer. The international band — featuring Ana Simonovska on vocals (Macedonia), Mark Hunter on guitar (France/US), Dave Kaplan on harmonica (US), Peter Klein on keys (Canada), Geir Aage Vollan on bass (Norway) and Freddy Schaal on drums (Norway) — will play Friday night at The Orbit, a classic jazz club (with room to dance). The Orbit finds its roots and spirit in a small Jazz Social Club established in the historic Johannesburg suburb of Troyeville in the early 2000’s.
