Award-winning French/Balkan folk band MZAZA will perform at the Majestic Theatre in Pomona on Sunday 14 April.
Lead by enchanting French-Sephardic vocalist Pauline Maudy, these six musicians from Bosnia, Latvia, Greece, France and Australia have been known to deliver inspired performances driven by their eclectic backgrounds and European influences.
Recently returned from recording a third studio album in Greece, the group is looking forward to reuniting with their faithful Sunshine Coast following.
The band is also offering a singing workshop lead by MZAZA front-woman Pauline who will share her French and Ladino (Jewish-Spanish) ancestry through song.
Two-time Queensland Music Award winners MZAZA describe their music as, “Balkan French sounds for sophisticated folk lovers around the world.”
After forming 15 years ago the group has toured around Australia, Europe and visited the airwaves internationally.
The musicianship of MZAZA is realised with accordion, violin, percussion, double bass and Flamenco guitar and celebrates diversity, the old and the new, the familiar and the foreign, through timeless melodies.
The Majestic Theatre is located at 3 Factory Street, Pomona. For more information visit www.eventfinda.com.
