Saturday 28 March, Tony Gorman & Bobby Singh + Sandy Evans Trio feat. Bobby Singh

Tony’s infinitely nuanced clarinet playing is pensive. Accompanied by tabla wizard Bobby Singh, this duo was described by SMH as “intimate, like music being whispered in your ear, or like a confession from a best friend”.

The second half of this concert features the Sandy Evans Trio with Bobby Singh- an ensemble who redefine the fusion of jazz and Indian music with thrilling dialogue, breath-taking improvisations and stunning percussion solos.
