Event Details

In a group where the medieval meets the avant-garde, Gest8 expertly combines rhythm, horns, electronics and the contemporary sounds of free improvisation, jazz and African grooves with the traditional Japanese flavours of the koto. The brainchild of Sandy Evans and Tony Gorman, Gest8 explores new sounds in improvisation and jazz – as evident on their acclaimed debut CD, Kaleidoscope. Extraordinary both for its unique instrumentation (including koto and electronics) and for the undeniable virtuosity of each player, Gest8 is a distinctively Australian ensemble with an unusual blend of ancient and modern sounds. The medieval meets the avant-garde through this band’s creative processes, stimulating musicianship and camaraderie.

This is one of the most interesting and unusual jazz performances you are likely to hear for some time – don’t miss it!
