ndy Evans, Sarangan Sriranganathan, Ben Walsh & Bobby Singh

Dear Friends

It is time for our next SoulFood on Sunday’s at Qirkz...

This time we will explore the rich sounds of Carnatic, Jazz & Hindustani Music, combined with some fantastic world class percussion from one of Australia’s leading drummers.

This concert will feature the incredible Sandy Evans on Saxaphone, Maestro Sarangan Sriranganathan on Sitar and Vocals, Drummer extraordinaire Ben Walsh and Tabla player Bobby Singh.

Together they have been performing for a number of years and have had the privilege of accompanying one of India’s greatest Mridangan master Guru Karaikuddi Mani. In this concert they will explore the different melodic and rhythmic ideas from the North and South of India.

This is a rare concert of all four musicians together as all the members are frequently busy with many other projects locally and around the world....can't wait to see you there!

About the Venue

Qirkz is an artist run space and is not a commercial venue, therefore it is not promoted publicly and there are no tickets for sale, only a donation for the music and venue. Because of this we only let people on our email list's know and do ask for you not too advertise it publicly. So the way to get the address is to send an email to this address info@qirkz.com and tell them the name of this concert (soulfood on sunday's) and your name and how many of you are coming and in return they will send you the address and confirm your space for you. We appreciate your help in doing this and also ask you to respect this procedure of the venue and understand that all this is done so we can mutually keep this kind of space and music alive!!

There will be beautiful pizzas, chai and coffee available before and after the show. You are also welcome to bring your own food or drinks but we (musicians) ask please don't eat or drink during the performance.

Descriptions of Qirkz

‘…a very exclusive performance at the most romantic, cosy, comfortable and fashionable venue in Australia; a warehouse space that looks like a cross between Wonderland and Austen Powers’ dream dwelling. Cosy couch corners with plush velvet upholstery, eccentric decorations from Monsieur Camembert’s collection of designer and retro bric a brac, and a surprisingly high tech edge. When I saw the place I was amazed and just had to perform there. It’s honestly not just a venue, it’s a fantasy. It will not disappoint. …The sound and atmosphere reminds me of all the things we love and miss about Europe. It’s got loads of atmosphere, warmth, eccentricity, with touches of bizarre and offbeat humour everywhere, (you'll see what I mean) And being there gives you the feeling of being part of something truly special and rare. So, I can’t wait for us to perform at the Warehouse and feel so lucky to be able to perform there, in a place that feels like romance itself...’

‘…a great new space - it’s called Qirkz and is the brainchild of Monsieur Camembert’s Yaron Hallis. It’s a great space – there are places to sit (for those who like to watch), a dance-floor, and ante-room where you can talk. It’s also full of the most amazing objets d’art, bizarre kitsch and all sorts of, well, quirky stuff. Its also BYOG (think of the savings!) and you can bring your own snacks or picnic…a civilised joint, in short.’

‘I don’t think there are enough superlatives to describe firstly the venue and then the night’s performance! The ambience is outstanding (not much point commenting on the understated décor!); we just loved the array of television sets with the inspired choice of harshly edited, eclectic video clips spanning decades of musical taste and experience. If we had just seen Harry Nilson in Monkeyman attire, followed by the Wombles we would have gone home happy....!’

‘...every word and note was delivered with incredible clarity via the space’s acoustics and with the added intimacy of being so “up close and personal”. It felt like being privy to a private performance in the musicians’ lounge room....’
