ACROBAT

David Chong was born in Australia, the son of Chinese acrobats who were touring Australia at the time. They settled in Brazil when David was 6 years old, and David returned to his 'native' Australia as a non-English speaking 25 year old. David finds himself in the unique situation of being Australian by birth, Chinese by heritage and Brazilian by culture. Acrobat is his personal tale of the contemporary cultural mosaic: a high-wire dance across continents on the sounds of Brazil and the aromas of the world. The song of a circus son. Featuring live music by Chong and his co-composer, jazz guitarist Nathan Slater.

PHOENIX

Originally from Shanghai, Wang Zheng-Ting is a master of the traditional Chinese instrument, the Sheng. Thought to be the inspiration for the western piano accordion, this 'Chinese mouth organ' is a true musical phoenix. Join Ting for an evening of storytelling, magical music, and delicious food from Shanghai to Sichuan.

A very personal look at three decades building a new life of music in Australia.
