An international, cross-cultural musical collaboration that fuses modern Australian jazz with West Bengali folk music, The Three Seas creates a unique and soulful sonic imprint that radiates joy onstage and on record.
The Three Seas music draws on the earthy sounds of folk music with a strong focus on the Baul tradition, and playfully creates new musical pathways using a contemporary jazz framework and western production aesthetics. Listeners can expect a soulful repertoire with a diverse array of voices and unusual instruments.
In a meeting of musicians from across the Indian Ocean, the group is led by Australian composer and saxophonist Matt Keegan and fronted by master folk singer Raju Das Baul.
“The Three Seas is a great example of the cross-cultural creativity that can emerge through the deepening links between our people. I am delighted that music lovers across India will get the opportunity to experience their music as part of Australia Fest.”
