PLANET: Dec Saturday Sessions with Shai Shriki & Noam Blat
01 Dec 2012 | Saturday
Do you have a taste for the exotic but can’t afford a world trip? That’s ok. We’re bringing the world to you.
December Planet will transport you to the desert landscapes of the Middle East and its sacred sounds with Shai Shriki and Noam Blat.
Shai Shriki, Gypsy Guitarist, Oud player, singer and multi-instrumentalist, captures different flavours of world music, playing some unique string instruments from the Middle East. Shaiperforms his original songs & music, traditional prayers from the ancient Hebrew script, Spanish & Eastern European Gypsy music, in a fusion of contemporary and traditional sounds.
Born in Israel to a Moroccan family, Shai’s truly authentic sound and voice invoke the desert landscapes and cultures, traveling through time. The Audience are taken on a world journey of sound, emotion and dance.
Noam Blat, a composer, singer- song writer writes and sings both in Hebrew and English.
Noam’s compositions are unique, colorful and deeply moving. They range from melancholic melodies, heart opening prayers to dynamic upbeat world grooves. They combine his Middle- Eastern background with flavors from Spain, India, Eastern Europe and his love for Jazz and Latin music.
Noam has finished recording his debut album The Wind in late 2011 and has been playing in venues and festivals Australia wide. His shows are often described as deeply moving while at the same time rhythmical and dynamic.
Don’t miss this unique concert of these two remarkable musicians.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. This project has received financial assistance from the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
