"Keyna Wilkins is a restless artist. An adventurous soloist, equally brilliant as a pianist and flutist" AUSTRALIAN JAZZ
Keyna Wilkins is a leading musician-composer who performs her own unique compositions and improvisations inspired by jazz, nature and thoughts. She was one of three national finalists in the APRA/AMCOS Art Music Awards for Individual Excellence 2018 and has performed around the world. She will play pieces on flute, piano (some with loop pedal) from her 4 solo albums, the most recent being "So What Bach" released at Sydney Women's International Jazz Festival last year to rave reviews. For this special show she will be joined by beatboxer-violist Connor Malanos, who has recently beatboxed his way around Australia and NZ. The show will be visually accompanied by textured noir projections.
