Bashka feat. Alisha Brooks (Aus/Turkey) Live at The Jazzlab

Concert or Performance

2 Dec 2018

The 2018 Melbourne Women’s International Jazz Festival has just launched and the Jazzlab is proud to be hosting performances every night from the 2nd to the 9th of December.

Formed by Alisha Brooks and Murat Yucel, Melbourne based group Bashka are creating a new genre which slips between east and west with natural ease.

Musically spanning two continents and many centuries, Bashka explore the contrast between east and west, composed and improvised, original and traditional, acoustic and digital. Their live performances are energised with a truly new sound combined with the delicacy of traditional Turkish instruments and master players. Live samples and loops merge seamlessly with ancient acoustic and modern western instruments to create music that brings to life old folk songs, gypsy ballads and dance music from the dirt streets of old Turkey.
