RAVI SINGH & THE INDO KINGS

Fijian born Ravikesh Singh is the driving force behind the "Indo Kings", a collective of talented Indian classical musicians who weave their traditional strings and percussion into a divine melting pot of sound! Ravi began learning tabla at the age of 10 under the mentorship of Sukhvinder Singh, Alpesh Vaitha, Sunil Kumar De and Pt Ishwar Lal Misra. Most recently, Ravikesh returned from Varanasi in India after studying the Benares Gharana style of tabla. Ravi’s musical inspiration comes from his gurus and listening to many different genres of music. He is a versatile musician involved in numerous Indian Classical ensembles as well as contemporary fusion projects in Australia and India, including the “Indo Kings”.

BAND OF DAWN

Band of Dawn is an AUS/CAN World-inspired folk rock group exploding with vocal harmonies, violin, slide guitar, zither, harp & world percussion. There are particularly mixed bloodlines in the group, flavouring the Eastern aesthetic of the band's rich soundscape. Band of Dawn has toured with The Tea Party & Jeff Martin and recently reformed in Brisbane after a spectacular run of shows at 2017/2018 Woodford Folk Festival. www.bandofdawn.com

GENTLE PERSONS CLUB

Gentle Persons Club is a 'world-roots' vintage rock outfit with a western twist resonating from their well-crafted and insanely catchy songs. You can expect infectious harmonies, quick picking, swampy beats, fiddle, tin whistle and trumpets! The band have recently released their debut EP "All We Need" which has been described as having a 'cacophonously uplifting sound'. 'Gentle Persons Club have taken that bewitching traditional Folk-Rock sound and slapped a contemporarily stunning new face upon it. They create an upliftingly magnetic sound that’s drenched in pure acoustic harmony. If there’s anyone I’d ever want to sit around a campfire with it’s definitely Gentle Persons Club.' -31 March 2018 Amelia Vandergast - A&R Factory. www.gentlepersonsclub.com
