SHOWAYJO: A Cross-Cultural Jazz Exploration
Saturday 21 September 7.00pm
SHOWAYJO is a special collaboration between musicians from the WA Youth Jazz Orchestra (WAYJO) in Perth, Western Australia and and exchange partners from the Showa University of Music in Kawasaki, Japan. The two groups will come together to form a cross cultural big band playing classic big band repertoire as well as premiering a special new composition created by all the band members. WAYJO’s Ricki Malet (trumpet) and Showa University’s Masa Ikeda (trombone) will also share the stage with these young musicians.
Presented by WAYJO, and proudly supported by North West Shelf Gas over the past 5 years, this Cultural Exchange Through Music project joins talented performers across the hemispheres in a way the transcends linguistic boundaries.
The latest 10-track SHOWAYJO collaboration CD is FREE on entry (while stocks last). Preview a little of last year’s collaboration online HERE.
Enjoy this special night of live, cross-cultural jazz exploration – for one night only!
