Pack your picnic basket for a free community concert in the lead up to Harmony Day!
Kavisha Mazzella is an ARIA award winning singer songwriter who does not believe in world music. It's just music!!! Music unites us and creating imaginary titles such as world music is silly! She enjoys crossing musical boundaries and create community experiences in her shows.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. While 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 its modal tones and ecstatic singing styles of Indian,Arabic, Southern Italian and Gypsy influenced song and links these with western folk music influences. Other influences that have made an impression on Kavisha's music are her interest in meditation and mysticism through the teachings of Osho,Sufi,Tibetan Buddhist Masters and Advaita teachings.
Please also join us at the markets on Saturday 16th March for free music-making workshops ahead of a community performance for Harmony Day.
