La Mama Musica

La Mama Musica is one of Melbourne’s longest running music nights, in operation since 1969. It is a curated concert series showcasing creative music, improvising musicians and sound-artists. 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. Musica encourages unusual collaborations, provides a vital space for creative risk-taking and supports the development of new work – giving each event a special air of excitement for artists and audience alike. From 2022 – 2025 we hope to develop a partnership with Melbourne Music Week to connect, bring in new audiences and highlight and extend the program.

Curator: Gemma Horbury

When: Monday nights four times a year.
