How the Hell Did We Get Here? – 3 & 4 November
At Home residency program
Supported by the Regional Centre for Culture
In residence 8 October – 4 November
Performances 3 and 4 November
Aria award winner, songbird and folkloric explorer Kavisha Mazzella will present video recordings of Aboriginal, immigrant and refugee people in the Mount Alexander Shire, to examine how they came to live in this area. Their stories will be reflected in music, with performances by Nic Lyon (bass & violin), Jack Norton (oud) and Kavisha (guitar).
Projected videos will be interwoven with spoken stories and songs developed through the residency.
Kavisha was awarded an Order Of Australia in 2011 for her services to singing song writing and reflecting the experiences of Aboriginal, refugee and multicultural communities through her performances. Her original song’s lyrical ingredients include humour, poetry, social justice and the spiritual. Combine this prowess with the voice of an angel and you have the experience of a Kavisha concert. Singing in English, Italian and other languages, she takes her audiences on an uplifting boundary-riding journey of well-crafted stories and songs that ring with echoes of Celtic, Fado and Gypsy influences.
