Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival and Foundry616 present Gai Bryant’s ‘ALLY’:

Saxophonist, educator, and composer Gai Bryant has an ongoing fascination with all the rhythms that make us dance, and particularly those blending Cuban, Peruvian and Afro-Carribean influences. During her Ph.D. study at the Sydney Conservatorium, Bryant’s brother frequently traveled to Cuba, bringing back records and curios to pour-over. Bryant thought the Cuban influence might make a good cornerstone for her big band compositional work and since then has sold-out shows in collaboration with Grammy-nominated Cuban pianist Elio Villafranca and her 20-piece ensemble Palacio de la Rumba. In her new Afro Peruvian group ALLY, Bryant promises passionate music featuring irresistible rhythms. The band leader will also be taking over the Bondi Pavilion, hosting a FREE Cajon music workshop open to the public on Sunday, November 3rd. Registrations required. Please visit siwjf.org
