“The Russian-born singer has a naturally dramatic sound that can skip effortlessly from ethereal ambient harmonies to the seedy glamour of jazz-inspired numbers.” Sydney Morning Herald
Multi award-winning Zulya Kamalova is one of the most versatile and accomplished vocalists on the world music scene today. Since her move to Australia in 1991 Zulya has developed a totally original approach as an affirmation of her unique identity – an affirmation that takes her Tatar and Russian background to totally new places and in completely new ways.
In this concert Zulya and The Children of the Underground perform exquisite original music inspired by Zulya’s Tatar and Russian roots. The music defies being labeled, but has been described as “Kurt Weillish, Euro-Cabaret jazz colliding with lullabies constructed to tear your heart out.” The band presents transformative concert music that is nuanced and theatrical, with Zulya’s smouldering vocals supported and enriched by accordion, piano, clarinet, guitar, double bass and percussion.
They will be launching their long-overdue fourth album.
Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Zulya and The Children of the Underground
