Moonah Arts Centre is kicking off its special event program with performances by Tasmania’s growing group of culturally diverse musicians this Saturday (August 18).
The Moonah Nights festival will delight and entertain audiences of all ages as if it takes you on an explorative journey of the best in international music.
From Iranian vocalist to Karen Burmese pop and great percussion traditions of the Congo, you won’t want for variety.
But it is the ability of music to bring otherwise disparate people together that is one of the main highlights of the 90 minute performance.
Along with sharing the traditions of their own culture, the artists who take part in this production will also recount some of their own life experiences through the pieces they perform.
Many will also be performing alongside their close friends or family members, who add to the rich tapestry of the show, as three generations take to the stage.
The production is part of an ongoing push to raise awareness of these unique cultures within the local community, as well as the profile of live music in and around the island state.
Entry is by gold coin donation and you can buy tickets at the door.
