Raj Jayaweera Quintet – Premiere

Sun 22 May @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$18 – $25
Raj Jayaweera - young male sitting pensively at his drum kit. He is wearing a patterned blue shirt, his hair is pulled back and he is looking at the drums.

Having spent the last few years based in New York, drummer/composer Raj Jayaweera is on a visit to Melbourne from his current base in Malaga, Spain.

He has assembled an outstanding cast of band members for this performance, with Mat Jodrell (trumpet), Stephen Magnusson (guitar), and Brett Williams (piano), together with his longterm colleague, double bassist Sam Anning (who has performed with Jayaweera around the globe for over a decade).

They will perform Jayaweera’s music from his albums, Pistils and Laniakea, (both on the Earshift label), as well as some newer compositions.

Doors open at 7:30
