We’re opening the Perth International Jazz Festival on Friday night with a totally free event in the State Theatre Centre Courtyard.
It kicks off with RTRFM’s Courtyard Club featuring Daniel Susnjar’s Afro-Peruvian Jazz Group – a multi-award-winning 7-piece ensemble presenting original compositions influenced by Afro-Peruvian rhythms and fresh arrangements of traditional Peruvian folk songs.
Followed by a performance via live stream from Amsterdam by Tin Men and the Telephone who’ll present their ‘GREATEST show’ – a spicy combination of jazz tunes and technology on the topic of climate change. Interact with this performance in real-time using the bands ‘Tinmendo’ App. Download from the App Store or Google Play before the show.
Closing the night is Dr Richard Walley’s Six Seasons with Junkadelic Orchestra with a collection of original songs paying homage to the Noongar seasons.
All performances are also being broadcast on the Yagan Square & Northbridge Piazza giant screens.
