Diverse Suburbian Sounds with Soundlands
The cultural melting pot that is Western Sydney is currently being highlighted in a series of concerts under the umbrella of Soundlands.
Focusing on art music in the suburbs, Soundlands features culturally diverse musicians and non-Western art music forms from Bankstown and beyond.
On the last Saturday of the next three months, head to the Bankstown Arts Centre to hear Arabic folk from the Iraqi Folk Fusion Ensemble, a traditional Japanese Koto performance courtesy of Satsuki Odamura Koto Ensemble and Ustad Sayd And Ali Sarshar Afghan – Indian Ensemble performing traditional Afghan songs with classic Indian compositions.
All masterful musicians, highly regarded in their respective communities, but artists that many might not know by name.
Producer, writer, owner/operator of Cultural Omnivore & founder of Soundlands – Kiri Koubaroulis joined Danny on Friday Drive to discuss the projects beginnings, creating this magical musical line up and what ‘Art Music’ is.
