FRI 27 March 7pm

Brisbane Powerhouse w/ the Ewan MacKenzie Trio



Mzaza is 

​holding two very special concerts to celebrate the Brisbane launch of their third CD, Ghosts. The first is with French gypsy swingsters La Mauvaise Reputation and the second concert features Zulya and The Children of the Underground.
Exploring themes of migrations and the spirits of ancestors left behind, Ghosts is inspired by the stories of Mzaza’s families, and of people around the world whose families once migrated, voluntarily or not.
Influenced by vocalist Pauline Maudy’s French and Spanish Sephardic roots, Mzaza’s writers and musicians skilfully create their own set of traditions from a tapestry of richly woven influences from France, the Balkans, the Middle East and Sephardic Spain. The songs trace Maudy’s ancestors’ journeys through Algeria, Morocco, Spain and France, and also the family journey of percussionist Jordan Stamos from Turkey to Greece.  Ultimately, through the tales of persecution and trial, a joy of freedom and celebration for life has pervaded the music of Mzaza.
It is the timelessness of the music and story that fuels an intense live show, deftly realised on accordion, violin, darabuka, cajon, double bass and Flamenco guitar. Mzaza have enraptured audiences at MONA FOMA, Queensland Music Festival, Cygnet, National and Woodford Folk Festivals.
