A guitarist, singer and songwriter, Jeff Lang has built up a reputation for startlingly original performances, working without a set list and allowing the unique energy of each night to shape the songs. Guitar Player Magazine has reviewed his music as “fiercely original and moving” and Sydney Morning Herald has declared him the “godfather of an Australia-based back-to-basics blues movement”.

Bobby Singh is an internationally renowned tabla player, both in traditional Indian classical music and cross cultural genres. Bobby has received numerous awards and accolades, and performed with some of the finest musicians in Australia and overseas. He has performed at festivals nationally and internationally, including Sydney Festival, Hyde Park Festival, Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony, Melbourne, Perth International Arts Festival, Singapore Arts Festival and Arts on the Move.

These Australian musicians first met musically through their Aria Award-winning world music project “Djan Djan” with the Malian kora player, Mamadou Diabate.
