Welcome to my website

Live music is (almost) back in Melbourne (again!)!  Check the gigs tab for upcoming shows, including a new date for the premiere of "Oxossi: The Hunter" at the Melbourne Recital Centre.

The gigs may be slowly coming back, but many musicians still really need the support of platforms like Bandcamp to make ends meet.  Bandcamp are continuing to waive their revenue share on the first Friday of each month, which means more money from album sales goes straight to the artists.  But there are other platforms, and frequently the best way to support the artist is to buy directly from them.  And don't forget that little things like subscribing to youtube channels, or following facebook pages can really help too.

Sign up to my enews now to find out about gigs, new albums, videos and more.  If you're lucky, you'll see my dilletante-ism in full flight!  We'll also be launching our new podcast very soon.  I say "stay tuned," but that's not how podcast technology works.Al

On the concert front, Panorama Brasil will be back on stage in January, but before that you can catch Dany Maia at the Paris Cat in November.  Like us on facebook or follow us on twitter to stay up to date.  We're also releasing more video and recordings from the back catalogue, so make sure you subscribe on youtube.

Melb Recital Centre Jan 27 - Panorama Brasil

Panorama Brasil presents:

Oxossi - The Hunter

Melbourne Recital Centre, Southbank

***New date***

Thursday Jan 27, 7pm

For this performance, the ensemble takes inspiration from the story of Afro-Brazilian deity Oxóssi. After tempting fate, Oxóssi is spared death, only to discover that he can no longer recognise his family. Separated from his loved ones, he spends the rest of his days wandering the forests, where he becomes a supreme hunter and a spiritual guardian of the lands. This ancient tale of fate and fortune, tragedy and transformation, is encapsulated by Panorama Brasil’s expressive music-making and gift for storytelling.

Details and bookings here.
