Ben Shelley - WAAPA Jazz Graduation Recital

Tuesday 16 November 9.00pm

Ben Shelley is an up-and-coming drummer who is as bombastic as he is versatile. Now in his final year at the prestigious Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, he puts on a show that flashes modern art against tradition; old school against new school; convention against non-convention.

From the tutelage of Perth giants Ben Vanderwal, Chris Tarr, and Daniel Susnjar, and encounters with international masters including Linda May Han Oh, Tal Cohen, Fabian Almazan, Mike Rodriguez, Gretchen Parlato, and Dick Oates, Ben has had no shortage of inspiration

Equipped with this great learning, Ben has assembled a style that is wildly adaptable to all flavours of music, while preserving his unique rhythmic identity. Joined by a cast of great talent and personality, he is excited to present a night of originals and reimagined works to showcase what jazz drumming means.
