Gai Bryant’s Ally

Concert or Performance

9 Nov 2019

Saxophonist, educator and composer Gai Bryant has an ongoing fascination with all the rhythms that make you dance, and particularly those blending Cuban, Peruvian and Afro-Caribbean influences. During her PhD study at the Sydney Conservatorium, Bryant’s brother frequently travelled to Cuba, bringing back records and curios to pour over. Bryant thought the Cuban influence might make a good cornerstone for her big band compositional work and since then has sold-out shows in collaboration with Grammy-nominated Cuban pianist Elio Villafranca and her 20-piece ensemble Palacio de la Rumba. In her new Afro Peruvian group Ally, Bryant promises passionate music featuring irresistible rhythms.

The band leader will also be taking over the Bondi Pavilion, hosting a free cajon music workshop open to the public.
