The Street Theatre presents a colossal bill of music giants and remarkable jazz performances in June with Australian music treasures and visiting international artists.
Internationally acclaimed iconic Japanese-born musicians, pianist/composer Satoko Fujii, and trumpeter Natsuki Tamura, come together in Australia with the Sirens Big Band to perform Fujii’s extraordinary Fukushima Suite and other works.
Fujii and Tamura separately and together are two of the most original voices in contemporary jazz today. Their music spans many genres, blending jazz, contemporary classical, rock, and traditional Japanese music into an innovative synthesis instantly recognizable as theirs alone.
Sirens Big Band, a predominately female 18 piece band under the direction of bassist Jessica Dunn, add their distinctive Australian voice to this cross cultural collaboration made possible with the assistance of the Australian Japan Foundation.
Featured non-Australian music: Satoko Fujii, Natsuki Tamura
