Closing the festival, this special event features the talents of SIMA’s 2020 Artist in Resident Dr Sandy Evans OAM alongside long-time collaborators Satsuki Odamura and Steve Elphick.

The inventiveness, musicality, sensitivity and responsiveness of these three musicians will open doors to magical musical places.

A trail-blazer for women in contemporary music, internationally renowned composer and saxophonist Sandy has a passion for improvisation and new music. Her work and research in intercultural music, specifically Indian Carnatic music, has led to international recognition.

Satsuki Odamura is a master of the koto and shamisen, having pioneered awareness of these ancient Japanese instruments in her performances throughout Australia. She has since collaborated with a wide variety of artists across a range of genres, from jazz, to Western classical, to modern, and Aboriginal music.

ARIA winning bassist Steve Elphick has provided the backbone for artists like Roger Frampton and The Engine Room, and jazz musicians like Sandy Evans, Mark Simmonds, James Greening, Carl Dewhurst, and many more, having grown into one of Australia’s most in-demand bass players across a range of genres.
