Introducing Perth’s GunFu, a dynamic instrumental group that seamlessly blends the idiosyncratic playing styles of Benjamin Witt, Ben Vanderwal, Harry Mitchell, Marc Earley and Sean Little. The ensemble comes together to create a unique musical experience, fusing jazz, West African, Cuban and experimental elements into a harmonious tapestry of sound.
The band interprets the compositions of Benjamin Witt, who has previously explored the realms of indie rock and experimental music, under the moniker Romeo Walker or as a session player featuring on Empire of the Sun and Pond records. Gun Fu marks his first foray into the jazz genre. The music was originally commissioned for an art exhibition featuring the works of collaborative painters Stephen Brameld and Jay Staples, each composition inspired by and named after a different painting.
Come down as the band celebrate the release of the first song “Observers” off their upcoming album.
