Niran Dasika’s Banff Quartet (Melbourne/Adelaide – premiere
Sun 22nd December @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm$15 – $20
Niran Dasika is an award-winning trumpeter with a distinctive, etherial sound and lyrical improvisatory approach, who has been based in Perth for 2019, but continues to record and perform in Japan. This year Niran was named Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year at the Australian Jazz ‘Bell’ Awards, received the APRA AMCOS Professional Development Award and was nominated for the Freedman Jazz Fellowship. In August he attended the Jazz and Creative Music Workshop at the Banff Centre, Canada, under Vijay Iyer and Tyshawn Sorey. For this performance Dasika will be collaborating with fellow Banff Centre alumni Flora Carbo (alto sax) and Adelaide drummer Kyrie Anderson, joined by Sam Anning (bass) to explore the legacy of the chordless quartet in Australia and abroad. They will perform originals by Dasika and Carbo, as well as some material by the late David Ades and Scott Tinkler.
