NHATTY MAN & GARA
A household name in Ethiopia and around the worldwide Diaspora, Nhatty Man and his 5 piece band Gara are emerging as once of the most energetic acts to hit Australian stages. Since relocating to Melbourne from Addis Ababa, Nhatty has performed New Years Eve at Fed Square, collaborated with new sounds and rhythms from Colombia to Mauricious and released Selam, an EP combining Ethiopian roots and reggae with conscious lyrics in Amharic and English.
LA MAUVAISE REPUTATION
French gypsy swing virtuosos La Mauvaise Reputation are Australia's most authentic interpreters of the wild rhythms and passion of 1930s Parisian hot jazz and the beautiful melodies of classic French chanson - sung en française, bien sur.
A four piece ensemble of vocals/guitar (Paul Gillett), accordion (Salvatore Greco), double-bass (Enzo Ruberto) and the extraordinary talents of internationally- acclaimed manouche guitarist Jon Delaney, the group's repertoire specialises in the timeless songs of Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet and Serge Gainsbourg and Jean Sablon and the unique sounds of Django Reinhardt.
