MIJF Congress Presents
& TAMIL ROGEON'S 'Son of Nyx'
Melbourne is recognised around the world as the epicentre for a vital, creative community of musicians who produce a truly unique style of jazz that draws on influences ranging from neo-soul to retro sci-fi. This incredible Festival double bill brings together two ground-breaking acts at the forefront of this new sound in Australian jazz.
30/70 is a collective of Melbourne-based musicians devoted to truth through sound and the beauty of endless motion. From swirling opening pads to sax-laden shimmers, the group effortlessly shift between neo-soul, astral-facing future jazz, and authentic vignettes of UK club music history.
Joining them on this double bill of new jazz excellence, is viola-jazz pioneer Tamil Rogeon (The Raah Project), showcasing tunes from his critically acclaimed recent release, 'Son of Nyx'. His swirling prism of exploratory modal jazz, Afro-latin percussion and string-led composition is heavily inspired by the spiritual jazz and jazz fusion movements of the 60s and 70s.
