AOTNZ Mundi Trio Tour 1 - 27 February

“…taking a musical journey filled with global colours, grooves and influences

Prepare to be transported! Mundi Trio comprises Brazilian percussionist Ricardo Stuani, guitarist Chris Dabinett and flautist, vocalist, and composer Tamara Smith. Mundi's music exudes joy and passion - taking you on a journey filled with global colours, grooves and influences.

They have performed at numerous festivals and the trio members were chosen to perform an original item on the banks of Avon/Ōtākaro River with Yo-Yo Ma and Marlon Williams as part of Yo-Yo Ma's Bach Project.

Tamara Smith grew up in rural North Canterbury and trained in classical flute before training in jazz at the Christchurch Jazz School.

Chris Dabinett graduated from Wellington Massey University in Jazz Studies and has had numerous years of guitar playing experience.

Ricardo Stuani is a percussionist. He has a Bachelor in Percussion and a Masters in Music from the University of Sao Paulo. After graduating, he moved to Europe where he studied jazz performance at the Rotterdam Conservatorium in Holland.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>
