The South West Rocks Arts Council is pleased to present the Kavisha Mazzella and Andrew Clermont Concert on Sunday, March 24 at 2pm at the Anglican Church, 19 McIntyre Street, South West Rocks.
Kavisha is an ARIA award winning singer songwriter who enjoys crossing musical boundaries and creating community experiences in her shows. Her catch cry is "sing for no-one, sing for everyone". She first came to national attention with her appearance in the Franco Di Chiera documentary "Joys of the Women" in 1993.
Drawing on her rich multicultural heritage she creates contemporary songs with haunting melody and lyrical depth. Her early influences come from the singer songwriter tradition of the likes of Sandy Denny, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen.
Over time, due to her passion for Italian regional folksong, she has absorbed influence from the East with the modal tones and ecstatic styles of Indian, Arabic, Southern Italian and Gypsy song and links these with western folk music influences. Kavisha's interest in meditation and mysticism through the teachings of Osho, Sufi, Tibetan Buddhist Masters and Advaita have also had an influence on her music.
Kavisha has empowered a generation of singers deep to the heart of the music, teaching singing in Italy and across Australia in a host of festivals and choirs. Come hear her pure voice.
Andrew Clermont has been regularly bringing gobsmacking music to the region from Totally Gourdgeous to BluGuru and the Apostle String Band tours.
Starting off as a basic three time Bluegrass Guitar Champion in the 80s he has come along more than just a little since then on fiddle, mandolin, banjo, Appalachian dulcimer and didgeridoo.
Performing together, Kavisha and Andrew will make soaring music!
Tickets are $25 and are available from Pharmacist's Advice, South West Rocks and tickethost.com.au
