Celebrate live music again at Peach Black Gallery with their Spring Collective series on the weekend of October 16 – 18 2020. The events, curated by Cadencia Productions and supported by the City of Sydney, will host three stunning, intimate, and diverse concerts over the three days. You can see 11 musicians bring their unique style to the stage framed by the artwork of gallery owner Matteo Bernasconi in a COVID-safe environment.
Opening night, Friday October 16th, features the moody psychedelic folk-rock vocals of Lulu Ilanda. Lulu a rising songstress in the Sydney music scene, accompanied by spirited guitarist Victor Jesus, will perform her honest and emotive original pieces. The second set is Colombian duo Carlos Arango and Angela Rosero, two artists hailing from nationally acclaimed Cumbia orcherstra – Cumbiamuffin. The duo, who have been performing side by side for more than 10 years, have a natural chemistry and sense of fun as they move seamlessly between Boleros, Argentine Zambas, Bossa Novas and Cumbias.
Saturday night presents a fusion of world and classical music with The Byron Mark Quartet. Byron Mark’s latest project explores the possibilities of combining a traditional string quartet arrangement with piano, cajon and tabla. After many tours and performances with flamenco ensembles around Australia, Byron has developed a strong passion for flamenco rhythms, and is using this knowledge to craft unique compositions that, although are inspired by flamenco palos, are coloured with Latin and Jazz rhythms and harmonies.
On Sunday 18 October in the afternoon The Marais Project will perform the last concert of this series. This performance will be a celebration of music for the viola da gamba inspired by Marin Marais. The group, founded by renowned viola da gamba performer Jennifer Eriksson, will perform the work of baroque giants Monteverdi, Handel and Purcell. Concluding with Folk Music from Sweden. The line-up features Susie Bishop (Soprano and Violin) and Tommie Andersson (Theorbo).
