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.
La Mama Musica MAY 2019 Features:
Jeremy Dullard curates an evening of gamelan (Indonesian percussion) and gamelan-inspired music. The first half of the night will be solo performances by himself, Adam King and Jonathan Griffiths. Nathalia Gould and Sophie Covey-Crump will join them for the second half of the show, playing new compositions written by and for this new ensemble.
