The Sichuan province in China is big, bold and brash – and so is the music. It’s more like blues or early rock than classical. In Water Pushes Sand, composer Erik Griswold and the Australian Art Orchestra team up with all-star musicians from Sichuan to create a ten-piece big band fusing traditional Sichuan melodies with modern jazz improvisation.
Experience the rich sound of winds, piano and percussion in a wild inter-cultural celebration of Chinese and Australian culture. This is going to be hot!
