ZELA MARGOSSIAN QUINTET
Sunday 25 August, 5pm
Variously described as “Armenian folk-jazz”, “ethno-jazz” or a “fusion of folk and jazz with traditional Armenian musical influences”, it’s hard to place the Zela Margossian Quintet neatly into one genre. Performing Zela’s original music as well as arrangements of contemporary works, the band is comprised of five versatile performers and brilliant improvisers. Together they play with an undeniable synergy, ease and joy. At times playfully competitive on stage, they are always impressive, both individually and collectively.
