Imagine a still day at the beach, surrounded by a natural palette of hazy pales, with no one else in the picture and that music you're listening to as you soak it all in, well, that's Anneka...
Sincere, captivating and irresistibly melodic… Anneka Thwaites is an emerging Christchurch artist who has been making an impression since the release of her debut album In The Pink. Her music is an eclectic mix that draws on elements of singer songwriter, folk, country and acoustic rock, paired with intimate vocals and reflective lyrics.
The style of gypsy jazz music was created in the time of WWII by an illiterate French gypsy named Django Reinhardt. Django spent most of his life doing what he wanted; enjoying himself, relaxing, and playing music.
Burke Goffe and Robbie Averill are graduates of the CPIT Jazz School in Christchurch, who have spent the course of their studies having the style of gypsy jazz drilled through their souls, and consequently have come out and formed La Petite Manouche - a guitar duo with influences of gypsy and modern jazz, creating a unique fusion of music.
