7:30pm Doors.
8pm Show.

Stories of love, harvest, death and transcendence, featuring powerful, hypnotic vocals, tampura drone instruments and acoustic/electric guitars.

Tui Mamaki (formally of The Mamaku Project) disappeared to Bulgaria in 2014  Where is Bulgaria!? It is in her childhood record collection, in her impossible dreams, as far east in Europe as you can go, and now, deeply woven into her voice & being, as TUi trained for the last 3 years in the techniques and repertoire of that extraordinary Bulgarian folklore.

Through this kind of exile/immersion TUi has uncovered a new sound for herself - a super intimate kind of Neo-Folk, underpinned by hypnotic odd-meter Bulgarian rhythms, and clothed in delicate and dreamy, eastern-tainted melodies. The English language lyrics soften the distance and make for a strangely familiar exoticism.

Myele Manzanza - The son of a Congolese master percussionist, born and raised in NZ listening to hip hop, jazz and dance music, as an artist Myele Manzanza brings an eclectic style and diverse skill to his craft to create a genre bending experience rooted in jazz and African rhythm which has earned him a reputation as a composer with vision, a producer and musician who is not afraid to experiment and a powerful drummer. "An inventive, accomplished and energetic drummer with a vibrant sound." - Sydney Morning Herald, AU
