SHOWAYJO: A Cross-Cultural Jazz Exploration

September 21, 7:00 pm

SHOWAYJO is a special collaboration between musicians from the WA Youth Jazz Orchestra (WAYJO) in Perth, Western Australia and and exchange partners from the Showa University of Music in Kawasaki, Japan. The two groups will come together to form a cross cultural big band playing classic big band repertoire as well as premiering a special new composition created by all the band members. WAYJO’s Ricki Malet (trumpet) and Showa University’s Masa Ikeda (trombone) will also share the stage with these young musicians.

Presented by WAYJO, and proudly supported by North West Shelf Gas over the past 5 years, this Cultural Exchange Through Music project joins talented performers across the hemispheres in a way the transcends linguistic boundaries.

You can preview a little of last year’s collaboration HERE.

The latest 10-track SHOWAYJO collaboration CD is free on entry (while stocks last).

Enjoy this special night of live, cross-cultural jazz exploration – for one night only!
