About Arabesk (NSW)

The music of ARABESK follows many paths at any one time. Like a river it is fed from many different tributaries to form the whole, drawing upon strong jazz influences... Django Reinhardt, Wes Montgomery, Eastern European Gypsy/Classical music, upon a backdrop of heavily African and Arabic influenced rhythms. At any moment it will swing hard, only to drop into a thick funk pumped bassline, all the while the violin floating above it. The drums hammer and thunder beats reminiscent of Motown, Blue Note and Afro Cuban jazz.

Recent performance highlights include top billing at the Takatsuki Jazz Festival May 2015 in Japan, followed by a week of club dates around Osaka area, performing at the 20th Blue Mountains Music Festival March 2015 and winning Best Instrumental Track at the Australian Songwriters Association Awards 2011.

With a wealth of musical experience it is little wonder ARABESK are such a powerhouse of invention and innovation, fused with constant hypnotic rhythms and laced with the lushness of violins and guitars, their music has been likened to a series of “conversations across the ages” where all kinds of traditions converge into a modern day celebration of intoxicating global grooves. ARABESK bring their own brand of original Australian world music that never fails to thrill the soul with every performance
