LA MAMA MUSICA
La Mama Musica is one of Melbourne’s longest running music nights, in operation since 1969. These days it is a curated monthly concert series showcasing creative music, improvising musicians and sound-artists at La Mama’s Theatre and Courthouse venues. The intimate settings and fabulous acoustics of La Mama’s two historic theatres allows fine musicians to perform in a very special environment, amidst the set of the current theatre production – so improvisation and flexibility of presentation is also part of our process.
The series has been organised by the curatorial team of Annabel Warmington and Adrian Sherriff for more than a dozen years. They encourage unusual collaborations, and ask the programmed artists to explore or develop something new in their work – giving each event a special air of excitement for both the artists and audience alike.
Musical Journeys is a vibrant multicultural ensemble featuring members from all around the world.
“We meet once a week to share, learn and create music, and we perform regularly around Melbourne. Our current line up includes members from Ethiopia, Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka, Fiji, Pakistan, Guinea and Australia. We perform a mixture of traditional songs and music from each country, as well as creating our own original music, and recently featured in an award wining collaborative radio documentary for PBS Radio.”
