Bengali beats, and the deep groove / Popping jazz/funk and hypnotic grooves

The Three Seas (West Bengal/Australia)

“A musical marriage that sent the room into ecstasy” (5 Stars) – Oz Asia Festival

This international, cross-cultural ensemble fuses West Bengal and Himalayan folk song with contemporary sounds from Sydney and Kolkata.

Soaring Baul vocals and majestic sounds from North Indian traditions are combined with Bengali beats, and the deep groove of the baritone saxophone in an energetic, uplifting “Bermuda Triangle of electro-dub, funk and Hindustani music” – Songlines magazine, 2022.

Drawn together by their distinct and diverse backgrounds, and their passion for creating music that resonates universally, be transported into the supernatural world of The Three Seas.

This tour is produced by SIMA with the support of Playing Australia and Create NSW.

With Raju Das Baul – Vocals, Khamak, Deo Ashis Mothey – Vocals, Esraj, Dotora, Guitar, Murchunga, Matt Keegan – Baritone, Clarinet, Ewi, Brendan Clark – Bass Guitar + Effects & Gaurab Chatterjee – Drums, Dubki

“a voice so vibrant you expect to see air molecules splitting in its path (4 stars)” – Sydney Morning Herald

“an immersive festival highlight” The Age

Mister Ott
Acclaimed saxophonist Matthew Ottignon fronts Sydney outfit Mister Ott, merging mesmerising Eastern sounds, tasty horn melodies, tight and popping jazz/funk and hypnotic grooves that drift on the edge of psychedelica.

Mister Ott’s third release “In the Flow” features tripped out dubs by Richie B, Afro-Cuban bata drumming, and styles ranging from future disco, vintage voodoo funk to psychedelic Ethio-jazz. International flavoured jazz tailored for the dance floor.

“It truly is a lesson in how to build, layer and develop tension” – LOUD MOUTH

“The genres influencing Mister Ott, notably funk, dub and Afrobeat, are significantly defined by specific cities where they developed – often exact districts within them. Beyond the retro aesthetic of its presentation (especially the elegant vinyl release), this album avoids literal homage, ultimately representing one of the world’s most underrated hubs of musical creativity: Sydney’s west side”  Sydney Morning Herald  ****

Matt Ottignon – Tenor + Baritone Sax, Ellen Kirkwood – Trumpet, Ben Panucci – Guitar, Daniel Pliner – Keys, Eden Ottignon – Bass, Carlos Adura – Drums
