Amazing world music line-up
Local world music band Mzaza are kicking off their "Off the Beaten Track Tour", which will include a gig in Brisbane at Black Bear Lodge on Sunday 3 February.

Mzaza perform at the Brisbane Festival

Mzaza, pronounced m-zAH-zuh, are a Brisbane-based six-piece band, who have released two CDs and get airplay all around Australia and the world. I've been lucky enough to have seen them perform a few times, including a spot at Brisbane Festival last year. With Balkan, Spanish and Middle Eastern sounds, interesting instruments including a kamanche, which I would describe as a Persian violin, and a Mediterranean feel, you'll find it really difficult not to dance. You can like Mzaza on Facebook here and listen to their music here.

Laique perform at the Brisbane Festival

Performing with Mzaza as a double-bill at their Brisbane gig will be Laique. Mzaza and Laique found themselves playing at the same festivals all over, and are looking forward to performing on the same bill in Brisbane, for the very first time. Laique are described as "swing / folk / pop" and have a 1930s Paris jazz sound, fused with Spanish flamenco music. You can like Laique on Facebook here and check out their website here.

Tickets to the Black Bear Lodge gig on Sunday 3 February are available from oztix here.
