“…this saxophonist surely ranks as one of the best contemporary jazz composers/musicians anywhere.” Ian Patterson, allaboutjazz.com January 27, 2012

A rare opportunity to see one of Sydney’s leading Indian musicians, tabla player Bobby Singh, in a thrilling dialogue with jazz musician Sandy Evans and her superb trio with bass player Brett Hirst and drummer Toby Hall.

Expect soulful melodies, breathtaking improvisations, hypnotic grooves and stunning percussion solos, redefining the fusion of jazz and Indian music. This is a not to be missed event.
