Gl bo Musica presents a concert of Adelaide World Music at it’s most intriguing and exotic. Featuring two amazing performance groups:
Moonta Street is a new performance collaboration bringing together Chinese and European musical traditions in a contemporary sound. Moonta Street is the heart of Adelaide Chinatown and this brand new performance group features the virtuoso playing of Zhao Liang (Guzheng –harp) Jazz drummer Satomi Onishi, vocalist Mary Heath together with world musician Keith Preston guitars/santur and young keyboard player Shivani Preston. Moonta Street is world music with mainly English lyrics, ancient & traditional songs and a sound that is both modern and ethnic with a distinctive Chinese and Anglo world music feel. A sound that could only happen in Adelaide perhaps.
Kashkul perform the ancient and classical sounds of Persian music. A sound that is Middle Eastern with a tradition steeped in the sound sof sufi poetry and passionate improvisation. Kashkul are one of Australia’s most accomplished groups presenting the distinctive sound of Persian vocal and instrumental music (Tar/Setar/Daf/Tumbek) This music is a defining sound that reached into Europe through the Middle East and across Central Asia into North India . Kashkul features the sublime voice of Shiva Aryanapad and the instrumental dexterity of Behnoosh Aryanapad as the foundations of the Kashkul ensemble.
