The Boîte presents Live Music Near Me: Sarita McHarg & Band

This event is part of The Boite’s live music program, ‘Live Music Near Me’ showcasing the music of culturally and linguistically diverse artists at a venue near you! Supported by Live Music Australia – an Australian Government initiative.

Since arriving in Australia, Dr Sarita McHarg has been exploring different ways to combine the music of her own culture with that of fellow musicians here. Subsequently, their music represents the literary taste, folklore and classical tone of many cultures in a unique blendof Indian, Sufi, Greek, Arabic, Turkish, Persian, and Hebrew music. Their inspiration is to preserve the various cultural elements and instrumentation and, at the same time, take the music forward.

Band members: Dr Sarita McHarg (Sitar and Vocals) Yuval Ashkar (Oud and Vocals) Pantelis Krestas (Bouzouki) Jonathan Dimond (Bass guitar) Matt Stonehouse (Percussion) Manmit Singh (Tabla)

Supported by Jenna Campbell: Jenna Campbell is an exciting live-looping artist with attention-grabbing guitar skills and an engaging sound that builds with a depth of emotion and a sense of adventure. Jenna’s layered instrumental music will transport you to other times and places as she fuses world music elements with progressive metal and jazz-funk.
