Come along to Blue Smoke and see Mukhlisa perform at the Spring Market Day!

On September 1st we're celebrating Spring at The Tannery Boutique Shopping, Dining & Arts Emporium with a festive Market Day.

We've lined up some world class live entertainment in Blue Smoke from 4pm. There'll also be records on the turn table and fine seasonal fare on offer throughout the day.

We'll be open from 11am til late in the evening and taking 'koha' donations for our musicians from 3pm onward.

Mukhlisa is a World Music group that blends Western instruments and Jazz harmony with the Middle-Eastern percussion instruments.

Tim Sellars is a drummer/percussionist who graduated from Canterbury University Jazz School with honours. His studies led him to examine the rhythms and tunes of middle eastern music and he put together ‘Mukhlisa’ to further these explorations.

"Watching Tim Sellars on percussion is eye-opening as he coaxes so many complex rhythms and sounds from his array of percussion instruments, that it beggars belief."

Mukhlisa is; Tim Sellars (riq, darbuka, frame drum, cajon), Tamara Smith (flute), Brad Kang (guitar), Michael Story (Upright bass).

Mukhlisa was first showcased at Christchurch's New Music Collective "World of Jazz" night in 2012. Since then, they have featured in other NMC events, various Jazz and Blues festivals in Christchurch, and have played at both the CJC and WJC in Auckland and Wellington.

They released their first studio album, "The Puzzle", at the 2017 International Jazz and Blues festival in Christchurch.
