“Ultimately it is the collective imaginative responses to its influences that makes Mara! such a bright jewel in Australia’s world-music crown”.  John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

The Dom Perignon of our world music bands” Mara! return to the intimacy of Sydney’s finest live music venue, Foundry616, for a great night featuring old favourites and new works by it’s all-star band members.

This is a rare opportunity to hear Australia’s original “urban/cross-cultural/world/jazz/fusion” ensemble Mara! in concert, making the band’s live performances an exciting event to look forward to!

Featuring Australia’s jazz legends Sandy Evans and Paul Cutlan on woodwinds and Lloyd Swanton on double bass along with world music icons Mara andLlew Kiek, this stunning ensemble has brought original, innovative and virtuosic world music/modern jazz fusion to concert audiences in over 25 countries on more than 30 international tours and produced 10 albums including two ARIA winners and two final nominees.

They stand alone in the Australia music scene, having carved out a unique musical genre. The quintet’s passionate music and breath-taking improvisation has inspired and influenced a generation of young musicians here and abroad over the past three decades.

Mara!’s last two Foundry616 shows (one in 2016 and one in 2017) drew sell out crowds and a 4.5 star review from the Sydney Morning Herald: “Different sound-worlds kept opening up like fresh vistas on a maritime journey”.
