Description

For one night only, the award-winning Culture Train will stop over in Brisbane for an intimate performance under the iconic Story Bridge at Queensland Multicultural Centre, during its regional tour in celebration of Queensland Multicultural Month.

Featuring five world-renowned artists from culturally diverse backgrounds, The Culture Train will take its collective of traditional and contemporary music and performance arts to regional Queensland audiences who are often disenfranchised from accessing cultural performances of this calibre.

Acts:

An irrepressible creativity, tremendous clarity and exciting rhythmic improvisation are his stylistic hallmarks and this has established him, worldwide, as one of the finest exponents of tabla.
