Presented by Ipswich Civic Centre and supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland
We are ready to usher you back into Ipswich Civic Centre, and raise the curtain for an amazing program of live entertainment, music, dance, drama, comedy and so much more – starring Kooralbyn!
A new cross-cultural music production featuring Queensland artists Tenzin Choegyal (Tibetan musician/vocalist), Kacey Patrick (vocals), Jarred Fogarty (didgeridoo/dance), Andrew Veivers (guitar), Rafael Karlen (saxophone), Rebecca Karlen (violin/vocals) and John Reeves (piano/piano accordian).
Drawing on their personal cultures and unique artforms “Kooralbyn” features artists from across the globe including First Nation, Tibetan, Celtic and Northern European musicians.
Artists shared compositions/songs from each of their homelands (Tibet, Sweden, Holland, Britain, Australia) and their musical traditions (flamenco, jazz, First Nation, Tibetan, African, classical) as a starting point for this unique collaboration.
The resulting work is an exploration of the interconnectedness of their individual cultural backgrounds expressed through the textual possibilities and traditions of their instruments.
Kooralbyn embraces a celebration and deconstruction of genre related technical and structural forms… with the resulting new work bearing little sonic resemblance to the original traditional tune but maintaining it’s integrity as a shared expression of collective cultural authenticity.
