Australia’s most influential saxophonist, Dr Sandy Evans joins Master koto player Satsuki Odamura and ARIA-Award winning bassist Steve Elphick for a breath-taking performance at the Sydney Opera House.

Having paved the way for female jazz musicians here at home and abroad, Sandy Evans’s work exploring intercultural music is impressive.

“It began with all three musicians playing Tibetan singing bowls, a sound that did not just fill the air, but seemed to make each molecule glisten.” – The Music

Satsuki Odamura is a master of the koto and bass koto. Odamura brings awareness of these traditional Japanese instruments to the Western world, sharing her experience in a range of Western genres.
