Sandy Evans’ Kapture (9pm)


Kapture is a masterfully performed fusion of jazz and Indian classical musics The Music Trust

Five of Australia’s leading jazz and Indian musicians present a moving musical tribute to South African freedom fighter—and Nelson Mandela’s cellmate—Ahmed Kathrada.  The 12 compositions that make up Kapture—most written by Sandy Evans—explore a range of moods, from meditative to lyrical, energetic to dark. The vocal presence of Sarangan Sriranganathan extends this palate even further. In some pieces a narrative or theme is used as inspiration—on The Censors,‬ Kathrada’s prisoner number is employed as a rhythmic base—while others are lyrical representations of an idea or event, or are more abstract musical interpretations of loss or hope.

The success of ‭Kapture‬ is testament to both the quality of the writing and the artistry and commitment of the musicians.‬‬‬‬ The music was developed in collaboration with renowned choreographer Liz Lea. Don’t miss this extraordinary artistic event.  ‬‬‬‬

Opening Act: Tony Gorman and Bobby Singh (8pm)

A rare opportunity to hear triple ARIA award-winning artist Tony Gorman together with tabla-master Bobby Singh. Described by the Sydney Morning Herald as "intimate, like music being whispered in your ear, or like a confession from a best friend", this is a wonderful opportunity to hear this accomplished duo.
