Music to move you and make you move – Beyondsemble AOTNZ tour 2 Sep-1 Oct
Ever since its 2009 debut, Beyondsemble, ‘the ensemble beyond genre’ has excited audiences with its enormous vitality and range.
“I’ve played in numerous bands and dreamed about creating one band that could play it all,” says the Beyondsemble’s Craig Denham. "This band can.”
All four members are multi-instrumentalists able to perform in a range of musical styles merging Celtic, Eastern European and Gypsy with Latin and tango rhythms as well as improvising in jazz, swing and rock.
Besides seasoned professional Craig Denham (Mamaku Project, ex-Ardijah, Club Manouche etc) on accordion, keyboards, vocals and whistles, the band consists of Jess Hindin (The Exiles, Tim Beveridge, Boh Runga etc) on violin and keyboards, Chris Koole (The Warners) on vocals and home made percussion, and rising acoustic guitar star Mark Mazengarb on guitars and bouzouki.
The ensemble, which provided the pre-show music for the 2010 World of Wearable Art awards in Wellington, will launch its first studio album, Beyondsemble, on this, the group’s first tour with Arts On Tour NZ.
