The Winter Collective16-19 June
With four concerts happening the weekend of June 16 – 18, The Winter Collective, a regular sellout event, celebrates live and local sounds surrounded by the carefully curated artworks by multiple award nominated visual artist, Matteo Bernasconi.
Opening the weekend is a unique collaboration by two female powerhouses – Angela Rosero, front woman of nationally acclaimed Latin orchestra Cumbiamuffin, and Sydney’s soul/R&B goddess Inês, who has recently toured with the likes of Thundermentals and Matt Corby. Having each just performed at Sydney Festival with their respective shows, the ladies will be joined onstage by a trio ensemble of made up of Clarinet, Guitar and Percussion, treating the audience to a night of fused cultures and beautiful harmonies.
Friday night sees Australian singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Julia Johnson. Supporting the likes of Courtney Barnett, Tim Rogers, and Pete Murray, Julia’s voice has been compared to Florence Welch, Joni Mitchell, Laura Marling, and even a ‘treacherous mountain river’. Performing in trio format, the arrangements are ornamented with ethereal harmonies and rhythms that swell and recede like a king tide. ‘Love the way this one swells up and up, and also the blend of the autoharp with more modern production; really pretty.’ – Zan Rowe – ABC
Saturday night the audience will experience the sounds of Portuguese Fado Music – both traditional and contemporary styles performed by two Sydney ensembles Alma Orquestra and Fado duo Ricardo da Silva and Sonia de Freitas. The evening, called ‘Novo Fado’, will draw on inspiration from traditional Portuguese styles, infused with elements of jazz, pop and classical music.
The final concert Sunday afternoon hosts Aria nominated Eishan Ensemble, led by acclaimed Persian-Australian tar player and composer, Hamed Sadeghi.
Drawing on contemporary and classical music traditions of both east and west, Eishan’s repertoire consists predominantly of Sadeghi’s original compositions with diverse improvisatory idioms featured powerfully. Variously described as “Persian chamber jazz” and “Middle-Eastern jazz fusion”, Eishan defies neat labels.
This series will be a feast for the ears and the eyes appealing to art loves and music lovers alike.
After the recent Arrebato sold out show at Peach Black, we will Showcase Flamenco again in it’s purest form.
Tablao is a night of raw emotion in an intimate setting. The performance brings together dancers from The Sydney Flamenco Studio led by Chachy Peñalver accompanied by musicians – Greg Alfonzetti (Guitar), Damian DeBoos (Cello), Byron Mark (Percussion) and Zoe Velez (Singing).
In October this year we welcomed award winning Bobby Alu through the doors, just prior to his nation wide tour with Busby Marou. The group performed with a special guest Moemoanna, and weaved their way through the night with gorgeous sounds, dance and stories of growing up as a Samoan Australian.
“His chilled out Pacific tunes have a long-lasting feel good effect and his finely crafted songs have instant appeal.” ABC Radio Australia
Three passionate musicians who write with all aspects of their heart, Arrebato Ensemble create a mesmerising and highly dynamic journey for their audience. The group’s music is primarily contemporary flamenco, with elements of classical, jazz, film soundtrack and folk music creating beautifully dynamic and emotive concerts.
The group’s previous albums drew critical acclaim with John Shand describing that while their music “moves from pure flamenco in favour of a more contemporary style, the spirit, a dramatic, sexually charged and haughty sadness, remains intact.” (SMH)
A tapestry of cultures and sounds come together for this exquisite concert set around Miriam Lieberman and her Kora (African Harp). With a strong musical chemistry between Miriam Lierberman’s Trio, the players effortlessly bridge an unconventional mix of kora and Western classical instruments. Together they build lush harmonies and soaring string arrangements around Miriam’s songs.
“Miriam Lieberman is something of a renaissance woman ……somehow she achieves the almost impossible in blending patterned western-ed pop writing with the earthy mystique of African rhythms and freaky world instruments.” Sydney City News.

“Yumba’’ – a word chosen by Tango musician Osvaldo Pugliese for it’s onomatopoeic similarity with the profound gasping from a bandoneón.
The sound of Adolfo Trepiana’s Bandoneon will weave its way through the heart of this unique Tango concert that will draw on sonic flavours from wider world music influences. Each of these highly acclaimed musicians have cultivated their own style, from Klezmer to Cumbia to Folkloric and Tango.
Their mix of sounds mirrors the eclectic beginnings of Tango Music – a style born on the streets of the working-class ports of Buenos Aires and Montevideo with influences from immigrants that populated the ports at the time.
