Way Out West

..an extraordinary cross-cultural mix that could only be Australian


Directed by Australian Art Orchestra’s Peter Knight, Way Out West is a listening experience like no other! The multi-award winning cross-cultural septet formed in 2001, beguiling audiences from Melbourne to Montreal and Veneto to Takatsuki with a sound that has been described as “utterly unique”. Taking out the 2016 Music Victoria Award for Best Jazz Album, their most recent release builds on the band’s long history of integrating Asian instrumentation in a contemporary setting, and infusing these influences with West African grooves and jazz inflected melodies.
