Music lovers head to Curryfest
EXHILARATING sounds of world music from an array of performers will fill the air at the Woolgoolga Curryfest on April 17.
The festival features renowned Punjabi Groove Masters playing infectious Bhangra music with a unique blend of Western beats and traditional Punjabi folk.
Well known in the DJ scene, the Sydney-based band has performed in front of huge crowds for the past nine years and shared the limelight with many international acts including Dr Zeus, Bally Sagoo, RDB, Tigerstye and Rahvav.
Playing at the Sikh Games annual dinner dance in Coffs Harbour last year, the band has helped spread the electrifying sound of Punjabi culture to all corners of Australia.
Also appearing will be the well-known Carnaval Drumming whose inspiration and sound is modelled on the Brazilian form of samba street percussion.
Thundering through the street in wild costumes playing pulsating rhythms, Carnaval Drumming will later perform on stage to keep the crowds dancing.
Closer to home, popular local bands will also take centre stage to showcase their talents.
Northern beaches’ Headland will invigorate with its wild jigs and reels, grinding blues and contemporary music while Bellingen-based Boom’s unique performance, also driven by drums, is sprinkled with the melody and harmonic spice of bamboo flutes, guitar and Marimba.
With its vast array of talented musicians and world music set to take to the stage, this year’s Curryfest is set to be the best yet.
