Brisbane classical guitarist, Duncan Gardner had this comment on Thibaud Garcia and Jose-Maria Gallardo del Rey's Sydney concerts last weekend. They will be at Magda's on Friday (Thibau) and Saturday (Jose-Maria) this weekend: "Don’t miss the opportunity to experience Thibaut Garcia and José Maria Gallardo Del Rey!

From the instant Thibaut began playing, I knew we were in the presence of a phenomenal artist. His playing transcends description… it’s something that has to be seen to be believed. I sat in disbelief and in awe. My jaw dropped, I laughed, I cried and I swooned. He is also an extremely down to earth and funny guy… he has it all!!!

Jose Maria is something different entirely. It’s hard to explain… but you will understand when you feel the goose bumps on your arms… and the tingle down your spine.
Jose Maria’s musicianship stems from a rich musical history. You will feel the presence of flamenco and of Segovia… of Spain’s greatest artists. He brings a different kind of rhythm and vitality to his music. It’s edge-of-your-seat, roller-coaster kind of stuff… You will be amazed!

His originals are superb. He also has a sense of humour. You will adore the piece he wrote for his little Chihuahua! Just do yourself a favour and see them both. You will be inspired"

It's so special - it's Magda's! Check us out!

Join us, support us, tell your friends and family about this fabulous, indie arts, and maverick kulcha space. And don't forget the photo exhibition currently on display: "Children of the Gulf War", by Japanese photo artist, Takashi Morizumi. Don't miss it. Mm ... See MoreSee Less

Upcoming...THE BALKANICS @ Magda Community Artz
Saturday 9th December  7.30pm
Book here
www.trybooking.com/SYCR

The Balkanics play high-energy music from the Balkans (especially Macedonia). The music is energetic, infectious and very danceable. As well as traditional tunes, many of them Gypsy or Roma in origin, their original compositions are inspired by many years of studying, playing and living these most vibrant of musical cultures. Featuring five accomplished musicians who have been playing together in different combinations for several decades, The Balkanics will intoxicate you, the hypnotic energy of their improvisations flinging you onto the dance floor. Cast away your worldly woes and be transported to a universe inhabited by extravagant rhythmic variation and catchy melodic invention.

The Balkanics include Anthony Pizzica (rezouki, tambura), Linsey Pollak (sax, gaida, clarini), Philip Griffin (electric bass, tambura), Ric Halstead (sax, flute) & Tunji Beier (drums). Between them they have performed in many varied ensembles (The Unusual Suspects, Makedonski Bop, Xenos, Okuta Percussion, Ross Daly’s Australian Labyrinth), performed with many international artists (Jimmy Witherspoon, Red Rodney, Elvin Bishop, Charlie Musselwhite, Mick Taylor, Billy Cobham, Nitin Sawhney, Pece Atanasovski) and at venues and festivals throughout the world (WOMADelaide; WOMAD NZ; St Chartier Festival, France; Perth, Melbourne, Sydney & Adelaide Arts Festivals; Vector Arena, Auckland; Barbican Centre, London; Hong Kong Arts Festival; Montreal Jazz Festival).

Saturday 11th November  6.30pm

Courtesy of Womens International League for Peace and Freedom.

During Operation Desert Storm (17 January 1991 – 28 February 1991) anti-tank shells containing depleted uranium (DU) were used. This material is a chemical toxin and a source of dangerous radiation. Exploding shells contaminate the vicinity with uranium. After the war, alarming increases in the incidences of cancers and birth defects were noted in the Iraqi population - and also that of the children of Desert Storm soldiers. Japanese photojournalist Takashi Morizumi travelled throughout Iraq documenting the effects on the local population. Brisbane was one of the first cities, world-wide, where this exhibit was presented (12-27 February 2003).

Born in North Queenslands Mackay to a Scotsman and the Torres Strait Islander daughter of Iama Island Chieftan Kebisu, Getano’s music is etched with his roots.

LIZZIE FLYNN & THE RECKONING first performed at Magda's with Sicilain folk trio, Oi Dipnoi. It is with pleasure we welcome them back. With a combination of lyrical honesty and charming melodies Brisbane artist Lizzie Flynn writes songs that blend a little satirical storytelling with a lot of joyful emotion. She will be releasing her latest album, You and The Open Sky, which is a collection of original songs, that weave audiences through toe-tapping country to tender ballads with songs of lessons learnt and love lost. She will be joined by Gareth Mewes, violin; Tina Fullerton, bass; Innes Campbell, banjo and Lisa Couper, vocals.
