Friday 17th August : Ethereal

Ethereal, Hobart’s premier ambient music ensemble, will perform their unique ‘Aqua’ concert on Friday August 17 at Moonah Arts Centre in collaboration with well-known Tasmanian artist Roger Imms.

Ethereal’s original, emotive music, played on harps, flute, alto flute, cello, didgeridoo, and including singing bowls and verse, weaves a rich multi-layered storyline enhanced by the moods of Roger Imms’ stunning seascape paintings. Included in the concert is Roger’s powerpoint presentation, adding a layer of richness to Ethereal’s intensely powerful soundscape. This combination takes the audience on a journey to discover a world of natural beauty through sound and music.

Saturday 18th August : Moonah Nights

Three generations of musicians from Tasmania’s emerging, culturally diverse communities will come together on Saturday the 18th of August for a unique night of live world music as part of the Moonah Arts Centre’s special events program.

Moonah Nights is a development showcase for culturally diverse musicians, keen to share their cultural traditions and develop new audiences for their unique style of music. See and hear contemporary and traditional musicians and vocalists from Iran performing in Farsi; maybe get your first taste of Karen Burmese pop; or thrill to the dance and vocal traditions of the Dinka speaking community. Madi speaking Adunga players will present from both the traditional repertoire of this popular African string instrument as well as contemporary compositions. Hear generations of vocalists from the great musical traditions of the Congo and Zimbabwe.
