The Boite and MAV are proud to present a wonderful Sunday afternoon of Balkan, Mediterranean and Sephardic Jewish music as Queensland trio East of West and Melbourne’s Saray Iluminado Femme join in a double bill of contemporary music informed by deep traditions.
East of West, on the southern section of their East Coast tour to launch their new album, ‘Moving Home’ bring their new Balkan and Mediterranean influenced compositions (with a hint of jazz) to fresh audiences, while Saray Iluminado Femme will be offering their haunting and powerful diasporic reimagining of Sephardic Jewish Romances and Sevdalinka songs.
An afternoon of music not to be missed!
Supported by MAV, The Boite and Creative Australia (formerly Australian Council for the Arts)
Straddling borders of music and theatre, SARAY Iluminado, creatively reimagines Bosnian Sevdah and Sephardic Jewish music in contemporary Australia. The ensemble was formed in 2013 and is led by the Bosnian-Australian artist Dr Nela Trifkovic, including members Irine Vela (the haBiBis,) Ernie Gruner (Bohemian Nights,) Kelly Dowall (Gelareh Pour’s Garden) and Dan Witton (Bush Gothic.)
