Niran Dasika ‘Suzaku’ Quartet & ‘Kiri’ (Aus/Japan)
Sun 18 December, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$20 – $30
Joined by Tokyo-based pianist Sumire Kuribayashi along with the Melbourne rhythm section of Sam Anning (bass) and Kyrie Anderson (drums), trumpeter Niran Dasika will perform music from his 2018 award-winning quartet album ‘Suzaku’ as well as from his new quartet release ‘Mizuchi’. Niran formed his Tokyo-based quartet while living in the city from 2016 to 2017 and toured extensively around Japan as well as to Australia, performing at the Wangaratta Jazz Festival and Perth International Jazz Festival in 2018. The first set will feature the performance of Kiri, the duo project of Niran Dasika and Sumire Kuribayashi. ‘Kiri’ follows a suite of music inspired by the ‘nihonga’-style paintings of Kaii Higashiyama, which capture the ethereal beauty, drama and pathos of Japan’s natural landscapes and seasonal change.
