SONGS of Transformation
The endless blue sky of Southern Italy is marked by the swift and darting flight of the swallows returning from Africa.
Thus does the songbird Kavisha return to her roots and in her journey has rediscovered old gems from the 1400 to the 1900’s.
She is also a poetic songwriter .Her contemporary songs together with these ancient songs of love, humour, laments, protest songs and death paint a strong portrait of the gutsy people who worked the land and show the rich tradition of authentic Italian Folk. Kavisha is artfully joined by veteran world musicians Nicolas Lyon on violin and double bass and Jack Norton on Bazouki and guitarra battente ,
The Aria award winning songbird Kavisha Mazzella will take you on an unforgettable transformational musical journey celebrating Life love and beauty.

A delightful afternoon of meaningful music and song from Rose and Carl.

Rose Turtle Ertler is a musician, composer and community arts facilitator. She plays a range of instruments including ukulele, banjo, piano, electric guitar and is inspired by everything from string quartets to nude distorted noise artists.

She has performed extensively over the last 30 years, often touring solo, other times in numerous collaborations.

Rose is a member of the Black Orchid Stringband a group of people from the Australian West Papuan community who use music to share stories of their culture and struggle for independence.

After 31 years gallivanting on the mainland, Rose relocated back to Tasmania a couple of years ago. Her most recent project is an all women/girls onslaught of 22 electric guitar/bass players called ‘Mapatazi’ who play only their own original material. The band’s world premiere gigs were in March 2021 as part of Ten Days on the Island.

Rose is currently planning a series of solo piano/vocal gigs in Tassie and on the mainland.

Carl writes songs on the sharps of arrows. And when he sings them, they are delivered directly into the heart of people… (Naomi Edwards)
