Enjoy this great world music supergroup in concert
On Saturday June 24, get along to the theatre at Queensland Multicultural Centre to see Tibet2Timbuk2 in concert. Best described as a world music super group, they will perform a range of folk and world music that literally range from Tibet to Timbuktu. Don't miss this rare opportunity to see why Tibet2Timbuk2 always receives rave reviews.
Tibet2Timbuk2 was formed in 2008 and provides a great fusion of musical styles. Tibet Folk music combines with African and reggae sounds while being accompanied by Indian tablas. With three talented members who are all interested in a range of different musical styles, this combines to perfection and has attracted rave reviews on the rare occasions these popular performers are able to come together to perform.
The artists include Tenzin Chpegyal, who was born to a Tibetan nomad family and whose interest in music was stimulated by his families own traditional musical talents. He has performed in such esteemed establishments as Carnegie Hall and The Sydney Opera House. He is joined by Shen Findell, a master of the tabla or Indian drum. Shen has performed internationally with leading artists in numerous countries, in particular Japan and India. Last but not least is Marcello Milani on guitar and vocals. He is also a respected song writer.
Located under the Story Bridge at Kangaroo Point, this great location has wonderful performance theatre. The wide stage faces a reasonably sized auditorium which means you can get a nice sized crowd but still stay close to the performers.
The World Music Cafe organisers will operate the bar and the kitchen on the night. There is also several locations nearby for a meal, but the closest is the Story Bridge Hotel which has 4 different dining venues.
The Story Bridge Hotel is a nice place to eat before the show or for drinks afterwards
Getting there is also easy. There is plenty of parking, with some at the venue itself (but get in early as it will fill up fast) and plenty of street parking in the area at night. Personally, though I like to take a bus or train into the city and jump on the free red ferry that goes across the river to the Holman Street Ferry Terminal right near the venue.
Jump on the free CityHopper ferry to Queensland Multicultural Centre
The World Music Cafe is a great series of events that show case both local and international world music artists. Always worth checking out, but Tibet2Timbuk2 promises to the be the highlight of the year.
