Event details

With two albums under its belt, Koi Kingdom continues to evolve its sound while staying true to the zestful, experimental tone that has pervaded its work to date. Saxophonist Cheryl Durongpisitkul, guitarist Marcos Villalta and bassist Stephen Hornby are a force on stage. The players dip between passages of synchronicity and individuality with irreverent flair. It is refreshing to take in.

About Koi Kingdom

Koi Kingdom makes eclectic instrumental music that ripples with exuberance. The trio’s sound is drawn from a wide pool of influences that stretches across jazz, classical and folk music from India and Brazil. There is a quality of youthful freedom, exploration and adventure in Koi Kingdom’s music that adds to the fun of hearing these artists play. A collaborative ethos means each voice is given the space to shine through. Indeed, the band’s big sound surpasses what you might expect from an acoustic jazz trio – ironic given the group takes its name from an animal that makes no sound at all.

COVID Safety

Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. When we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
