Rhythm Hunters Salam Dunia Tour + Special Guest Maizy Coombes at Blackheath Community Centre
A dynamite force in world roots music, adored for their frenetic drum choreographies and infectious dance grooves, Rhythm Hunters bring cutting edge physical percussion, western horns, Asian flute, deep grooves and electro beats, making them one of Australia’s most exciting festival acts.
Rhythm Hunters is an assault on the senses and cannot be translated to an audio only experience. This is true for their visually captivating and signature all female Islamic percussive dance finale, renowned for leaving audiences screaming for more.
Drawing from the cultures of northern Australasia, to the traditional folk songs of Indonesia, and the electro beats of cyber culture, Rhythm Hunters is a unique musical and visual act that easily slides into many genres including world, folk, groove, electronic and cultural genres.
Rhythm Hunters have played alongside acts such as Nahko and Medicine for the People, Tash Sultana, Evermore, Blue King Brown, The Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Hot Potato Band and more.
Festival slots include The Woodford Folk Festival, Peats Ridge, The Dreaming, The National Folk Festival, National Multicultural Festival, Winter Magic, Psyfari, Moomba, Jungle Love Festival, Subsonic, Mullumbimby Music Festival, Island Vibes, Illawarra Folk Festival, Cygnet Folk Festival, Dragon Dreaming, The International Reggae Festival (Malaysia), Granite Town and more.
Following a 14 month break, Rhythm Hunters returned to the stage for the 2018/19 Woodford Folk Festival to adoring fans and full crowds. In 2019 Rhythm Hunters look forward to releasing their highly anticipated new studio album; recorded by Robin Mai and produced by Nicky Bomba, as well as touring extensively around Australia and Indonesia throughout the year.
“Rhythm Hunters shone and inspired, the intensity of the drums, combined with the poetics of dance and martial arts was irresistible”. ~ Lisa-Maree Botticelli (Australian Stage Online)
“Rhythm Hunters seems to be a force of nature rather than a grouping of musicians…a show that was so musically engaging and complex that it feels like you have slipped inside an ancient myth or other world. I was clearly unprepared for the power of this act.” ~ Steve Gadd – Director Cygnet Folk Festival
+ Special guest Maizy Coombes (Blue Mountains)
Maizy Coombes is an endearing Violinist and Singer/songwriter with a contemporary folk sound beneath wholesome lyricism.
Using a loop pedal to support herself, this unique sound scape has the ability to bring out tears as you apply make-up or brush your teeth, yet still leave you feeling contemplative and joyous.
We first encountered Maizy’s gorgeous fiddle playing in “Lime and Steel”.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see her subtle and solo.
