KIM SANDERS & FRIENDS GYPSY PARTY at the CAMELOT LOUNGE

.

They’re back! Get out your dancing shoes, and get ready for Kim Sanders & Friends in Gypsy Party mode at Camelot on Friday July 7. There will be bent Romany (Gypsy)- style brass-band grooves, Persian reggae, Kurdish pulsations, ska, Sth African township jive and all kinds of weird originals. At all times, rhythm is king!

 

This version of Kim Sanders & Friends is:
* Kim Sanders: goat bags, breath tubes, zaxofon
* Llew Kiek: stringy things with long necks
* Sam Golding: honkenblurter
* Mustafa Karami: big tambourine (no relation to Salvation Army) and singing too
* Peter Kennard: whacking and shaking things

Kim Sanders has studied, recorded and performed in Turkey, the Balkans, West Africa, China and Indonesia. He has grooved with the Roma (Gypsies) in the Balkans and Turkey. He is the first Australian to have a Turkish Classical composition published in Turkey. In Australia he has performed with musicians from every continent except Antarctica – even with Normie Rowe at Penrith Leagues! Now that’s street cred!

Another Australian World Music pioneer, Llew Kiek,has recorded 10 albums and performed in 20 countries with ARIA-winning folk-jazz group Mara! He was Australian World Music Instrumentalist of the year in 1999. Llew and Kim have been playing in each other’s bands since 1983.

Sam Golding performs in many musical settings from Senegalese mbalax through traditional music from the Balkans, jazz small groups, reggae and cabaret. He is currently working with Darth Vegas, The Glorious Sousaphonics, The Fantastic Terrific Munkle and that ain’t all.

Kurdish Iranian Mustafa Karami was declared Best Dhaf Player in Iran at the Festival of Dhaf in 2005/6/7. He also sings and plays oud. Mustafa has performed throughout Iran with ensembles such as Madakto, Javidan, Bamdad and Salmak.

Peter Kennard is another peripatetic world music pioneer. Colombia, India, Ireland, Mexico, Japan, Venezuela, Ghana, Samoa…You name it, Peter has been there. He was also in Kim’s legendary Romani-style brass/ jazz band Brassov ( a band ahead of its time). Mustafa and Peter together drum up a storm.

Kim and his friends insist on respect for the sources of the music. “You can’t learn whatever music is current flavour-of-the-month from listening to a few CDs in your own lounge-room,” says Kim. “You gotta go to the source, study that, then maybe after ten years or so, you can start messing with it…”

World Music Double Bill at Camelot

World Music Double Bill at Camelot

Kim Sanders with Bobby Singh, and Horse and Wood feature in a double bill at 7.30 at Camelot on Sunday May 5.

.

.

Kim Sanders (ney, kaval, duduk, gaidas) has always avoided the shallow pastiche approach so prevalent in World Music. A pioneer of World Music since the late seventies, he remains at the cutting edge of the World Music scene. He has studied, performed and recorded in the Balkans, Turkey, China, Indonesia and West Africa. Collaborators have included Zimbabwean mbira-player Stella Chiweshe, the Istanbul State Modern Folk Music Ensemble, Turkish percussionist Okay Temiz, The Bisserov Sisters, Zulfu Livaneli, Indonesian World Music pioneer Sawung Jabo, Greek/Turkish rembetika/Turkish Klasik group Phanari tis Anatolis and Chinese fusion group Tianchuang. He has performed as a soloist on National Radio in Bulgaria, Indonesian national television with GengGong and in 2001 was the subject of a short television documentary on Turkish television (NTV).
Born and raised in England, Bobby spent a great deal of his childhood in Mumbai studying at Sangeet Mahabharati an institute of music started by the great tabla maestro Pandit Nikhil Ghosh. Recognized with a great talent at a young age, Bobby became a student of Pandit Nikhil Ghosh’s senior disciple Aneesh Pradhan, now one of the most sought after tabla players in the world. Through Aneesh’s guidance Bobby was nurtured into a mature internationally renowned tabla player, both in traditional Indian classical music and cross cultural genres.
Now a resident of Australia, he still spends most of his time between India and Australia. Bobby has received numerous awards and accolades and has performed with some of the finest musicians in Australia and overseas including Slava Grigoriyan, Greg Sheehan, Ben Walsh, David Hirschfelder, John Butler Trio, Sandy Evans, Pandit Ashok Roy, Aneesh Pradhan, Shuba Mudgal,Purbayan Chatterjee, Joseph Tawardros, Charlie McMahon, Sandipan Samajpati, Partho Sarathy, Tony Gorman and Adrian McNeil amongst many others.
“Bobby and I have been playing together for a long time now”, says Kim, “so we have developed a rapport that lets us go to lots of unexpected places. Sometimes we even surprise ourselves!”
“The music is sometimes mystical…but can also be full of tension and real virtuousity” – Eelco Schilder, Folkworld (Germany)

Horse and Wood

The second part of the programme features Horse and Wood. This is project combining the sounds of the Mongolian Horse Fiddle and Harmonic throat singing with the classic Arabian textures of the Oud. Featuring Bukhu (Bukhchuluun Ganburged) and John Robinson. This is a unique fusion of galloping Mongolian rhythms, sparkling harmonic singing, and the warm, evocative nuances of the oud, and other exotic strings. An ethereal delight!

The two duos will perform separately and together in a four-handed collective improvisation. A world first!

KIM SANDERS & FRIENDS: GYPSY MADNESS, PERSIAN NIGHTS at CAMELOT

Friday Feb 1st sees the return of Kim Sanders & Friends and their unique style of Balkan Gypsy brass-band madness – and that ain’t all! There will also be Persian dance grooves, aetherial Sufi meditations, Sth African township jive and strange uncategorisable originals. Special guest with the band will be Iranian Kurdish percussionist Mustafa Karami, a master of the dhaf (frame drum). Mustafa also sings and plays oud.

.

“We’ve had some Persian tunes in the repertoire for a while – including Persian reggae” says Kim “but this gig will give us a chance to learn a few new grooves. Mustafa and I played together in Davood Tabrizi’s Far Seas last year. Llew Kiek has also played Persian music in Mara! and with Kim in Nakisa, Tansey’s Fancy and various ad hoc ensembles over the years, Peter Kennard is a great frame-drum player, so there should be a lot of things happening”.
There will also be music with a Balkan Gypsy brass band feel. Kim has played with Gypsy musicians in Macedonia and Turkey, so he is quite at home with improvisation in 11/8 and other bent rhythms. “The trick is” says Kim, “not to count. It’s all feel – the grannies in the villages in Macedonia have never heard of 9/8, but they can do the dance OK! And of course, you always get Romani musicians for your wedding – they’re the best! They are the only people who understand that going half-way round the world to play music doesn’t mean you have a big house and a Ferrari by the pool at home. I remember staying with Romani friends in Berovo, Macedonia, and the party started half an hour after we arrived. Even the 10 year-old kids could play…”
The band will be driven along by Sam’s Stylish Sousaphone.

Kim Sanders: ney, kaval, gaida, saxofon
Llew Kiek: bouzouki, baglama
Sam Golding: sousaphone
Peter Kennard: percussion
Mustafa Karami: oud, vocals and percussion

“The enthusiasm and passion of this globetrotter’s music makes the listener get carried away from the first notes” – Rootstown (Belgium)
“Exotic and uplifting world music with a contemporary feel”
– Paul Petran, Producer, Music Deli, ABC Radio National

“Sanders’ skills as an instrumentalist are impressive, far superior to most Western players who make money from the same instruments…(As a composer, his work is) new and genuinely exciting…Great fun, full of ideas and surprises and an artist deserving of greater exposure” – Chris Williams, fROOTS Magazine (UK)

Kim’s CDs

Bent Grooves

frontcover-low-res

Magical collective improvisation framed by lush melodies and anchored by hypnotic rhythms, drawing from the traditions of Turkish Sufi and folk music, Balkan Gypsy brass bands, West African grooves, Indian Classical music, flamenco, blues and jazz.

Magical collective improvisation framed by lush melodies and anchored by hypnotic rhythms, drawing from the traditions of Turkish Sufi and folk music, Balkan Gypsy brass bands, West African grooves, Indian Classical music, flamenco, blues and jazz.

Featuring (in order of height): Sandy Evans: soprano and tenor saxes; Carlos Villanueva: charango; Bobby Singh: tabla; Kim Sanders: ney, Turkish gaida, aardvark, kaval, mey, tenor sax, saluang; George Doukas: bouzouki, Greek baglama; Llew Kiek: Turkish baglama; Steve Elphick: double bass.

The CD was produced by Tony Gorman, engineered by Ross A’Hern and mastered by Paul Bryant. The project was assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding advisory body.

What the critics say about Bent Grooves

“That asinine term ‘world music’ actually acquires some meaning when applied to the art of Kim Sanders. The Sydney multi-instrumentalist has stewed in musical melting pots from Indonesia to Gambia and is especially steeped in the sounds of Turkey and Eastern Europe. Having absorbed these traditions, he plays within or without them as suits his creative impulses.Sanders’s long-term collaboration with tabla player Bobby Singh stretches the sonic world of Asia Minor eastward, towards the subcontinent, just as Steve Elphick’s bass and Sandy Evans’s saxophone bring jazzier sensibilities to bear. But Sanders never forces square pegs into round holes and his musical imagination unfolds with a marvellous fluidity, like a river being fed by many tributaries, with the main flow mingling beautiful, often melancholy melodies with evocative rhythms and exotic textures.His own braying tenor saxophone, assorted wistful flutes and sometimes imperious bagpipes radiate a joy in having such open dialogues with his gifted collaborators; dialogues that have been superbly recorded.” – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

“What I wouldn’t give to have friends like these!…Bent Grooves is an instrumental CD, beautifully measured and layered” – Jaslyn Hall, ABC Limelight Magazine“No ‘world fuzak’ here!” – Doug Spencer, Producer, The Weekend Planet, ABC Radio National

 

Trance’n’Dancin  

Kim Sanders’  CD Trance’n’Dancin is an exploration of trance music, from the etherial flights of the ney flute used in the rituals of Turkey’s Mevlevi Dervishes to the hypnotic dance-rhythms of the Balkans. It also features the world’s first composition for Bulgarian bagpipe and Hammond organ.

Featuring Kim Sanders: Turkish ney (Sufi flute), kaval (Bulgarian wooden flute), Bulgarian and Turkish gaidas (bagpipes), aardvark (Turkish/Bulgarian/Australian hybrid bass bagpipe), mey (Turkish double reed), saluang (Sumatran flute) & Peter Kennard: dhaf, bendir, darabukka, megabukka, riq, zills, gong-on-a-mattress, wood-blocks, dried budgies, surdo, ride cymbal, harmonium, keyboards, chan, another cymbal

 

What the critics say about Trance’n’Dancin

“Sublime, haunting…The album is a beautifully shaped journey from the spacious taksims to fast and upbeat dance tunes… Sanders has spent years studying the music of Turkey and the Balkans and his passion and skill for this music are clearly evident in this superb album.” – Oonagh Sherrard for www.indie-cds.com

“There is a profound dignity about the expression of sadness in Turkish music. With neither histrionics nor sentimentality, the sadness is distilled into beauty. Kim Sanders has immersed himself in this culture for years and achieves an extraordinarily haunting sound on ney (Dervish flute) for the rubato improvisations on this haunting album. He is accompanied by Peter Kennard, whose realisatons of the slowest tempos in tricky time signatures is a marvel of meditative concentration and execution.” – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

“What stirs you throughout this album is the realisation that the breath is what brings you closer to God, that is the ‘ruh’ or the soul. Kim’s brand of music is based on the movement of breath and an inner connection to the mind and spirit. The album is a must for world music conoisseurs and anyone who enjoys the world of Islam.” – Kuranda Seyit, Australia Fair, Dec 05

“A major part of this album is a modern interpretation of Traditional Mevlevi (Whirling Dervish) and Balkan dance music. Yet it loses none of the meditative and languid qualities of the original trance music…The real beauty of the album is the way that the bulk of the tracks achieve the near impossible feat of exuding a sound that is elegiac but at the same time spirited. The hauntingly beautiful “Gidemem Siraza Ben” is almost heartrending in this technically masterful and emotionally uplifting intertwining of the plaintive with the exuberant… Multi- instrumentalist Kim Sanders achieves total command over all his instruments and together with Peter Kennard has produced a masterful album which is an ideal vehicle for a breakthrough to a wider audience.” – Dush Perera, Jazz’n’Blues www.corporatenews.com.au

“This is an energetic and distinctive blend of virtuoso playing from multi-instrumentalist Kim Sanders, masterfully accompanied by Peter Kennard’s magic trunk of percussion… Trance’nDancin features several different fascinating musical styles – Sufi meditations, Turkish lullabies, trance music, folk tunes- as well as an enigmatic track, “Solitary Circumambulation”, which Sanders claims is the world’s first composition for gaida (Balkan bagpipes) and Hammond organ. Sanders is a relentless champion of world music and this CD celebrates the freshness and sheer excitement of the Balkan and Turkish traditions with added new twists and a funky rhythm section to create a joyful session of music for listening or dancing” – Jas Hall, ABC Limelight Magazine

 

You Can’t Get There From Here

Kim Sanders and Friends’ ARIA-nominated CD You Can’t Get There From Here showcases traditional pieces from the Balkans and Middle-East and original pieces including “Hepimiz Deliyiz” (“We’re All Crazy”), first performed at the Ataturk Cultural Centre with the Istanbul State Modern Folk Music Ensemble, 2001.

What the critics say about You Can’t Get There From Here

This is a dream of an album, full of emotion and skill – Carina Prange, Jazz Dimensions (Germany)

I was immediately conquered by the beauty of the arrangements, the high degree of musicianship and the perfect selection of the tunes featured there – Massimo Ferro, Radio Voce Spazio (Italy)

A gem …Great sounds, textures, clever improvisation over tricky rhythms, an album for conoisseurs – Dieter Bajzek, Folk Alliance Australia

A beautifully-balanced mixture of traditional and contemporary sounds from Turkey, West Africa, India and the Balkans …A fantastic array of moods and charms – K S Seyit, Australian Muslim News

Plenty of beautiful, breath catching moments – Craig N. Pearce, Drum Media

You are sure to want to linger in this musical mystery land – Bernard Zuel, Sydney Morning Herald

Deliciously eclectic! – Doug Spencer, Producer, The Planet, ABC Radio National

Chronic Rhythmosis

Brassov’s World-Gypsy-Jazz CD – re issued 2014       

Brassov are acknowledged as one of Australia’s most original and accomplished contemporary world music – jazz bands.  Their irrestistible rhythms and vibrant melodies have their roots in the music of the Romany (Gypsy) Balkans, West Africa and Latin America.  This is music to listen to, laugh with, and dance to!

The members of Brassov – Robert Guzmani: trumpet; Christine Evans: soprano/alto Sax; Kim Sanders: tenor sax, Balkan & Middle Eastern wind instruments, eastern bagpipes; Boyd: baritone, bass saxes; Peter Kennard: percussion; James Pattugalan: drums.

What the critics say about Chronic Rhythmosis

This is richly-layered brass instrument playing ranging from the fast and furious…to the sublimely lyrical and emotionally sustaining…it’s a brass band that has absorbed its world music, bebop and big band influences and remains true to itself with a rich and distinctive voice.  Chronically good – Realtime, Jan 98

..(with) a gargantuan bass saxophone honking out the bottom end, Brassov take brass band music on a rhythmic bender through Africa and Latin America.  The result is berserk folk-jazz dance music – Richard Guilliatt, Sydney Morning Herald Metro, Jan 97

Marvellously engaging…one of the most original and enthralling of musical ensembles you are likely to encounter – Craig N. Pearce, Drum Media, Oct 97

…an insouciant and vibrant world hybrid, perhaps better thought of as world music jazz.  In it you can hear Balkan, Romany Gypsy, ska, Persian, West African and Latin strains, mixed in a riot of exotic polyrhythms and time signatures – Shane Nichols, Australian Financial Review, Jan 98

Armed with an arsenal of Balkan bagpipes and enough strange instruments to send an ethnomusicologist into paroxysms of delight, Brassov have produced an album of world jazz which is energetic, inventive and fascinating – The Jazz Messenger, Dec 97

People lift up their arms, wiggle their torsos and shout ‘whoopah’…It’s not often that you get to see a gangster, a showgirl, and a Balkan shopkeeper in the one band – not in Sydney anyway.  These guys are like the Macedonian Village People – they can definitely groove, in three, give seven and eleven. – Hugh Worrall, Drum Media, Oct 97

It is obvious that the members of Brassov have a thorough understanding of the sources at the heart of their project and the results were exhilarating: exuberant, raucous playing – Peter Jordan, Sydney Morning Herald, Nov 97

One of the most stimulating and vibrant groups currently operating in the local music scene – Blowing, Drum Media, Nov 97

 

GengGong’s CD – Not Just Music

GengGong uses traditional musics from many cultures (Javanese, Madurese, Bulgarian, Turkish, Arabic, Sumatran) in contemporary arrangements and original compositions.  Indonesion drums, gongs and reeds are combined with guitar, Balkan &Middle Eastern bagpipes, didgeridu, saxophone and wooden flutes to produce a unique and totally compelling performance.

Sawung Jabo: vocals, guitar, bonang and other gongs, dance); Kim Sanders: tenor sax, aardvark, Deravish flute, Bulgarian bagpipe, Middle-Eastern reeds, Sumatran saluang, percussion;  Ron Reeves: Sundanese kendang, Sumatran sarunai, didgeridu, genggong, buzz flute, vocals;  Reza Achman: drum kit, percussion, vocals.

GengGong: "Not Just Music"

 

What the Critics say:

GengGong rock hard – Revolver

The whole blend of traditional music they performed…created a rhythm of harmonic and peaceful sounds, as if we were being drawn into a spiritual experience together with them – Newsmusik

A powerful performing unit – Richard Jasiutowitz, Diaspora

Their commitment to excellence in performance, professional deportment and creative synthesis of traditional and modern elements…[makes] this band…the fore-runner of exciting new developments to come in the fusion of east and west in Australia – Dr David Goldsworthy, Senior Lecturer in Ethnomusicology, University of New England.

Wow, GengGong really went off!! – Seth Jordan, Director, Bellingen Global Carnival

GengGong have already made a significant contribution to contemporary Australian cross-cultural music, especially by promoting a sense of cultural exchange and understanding between Australia and Asia. – Lex Marinos, (former) Head of Carnivale.
