Fresh from launching his brand new album Nada Brahma in Europe, bassouki world music artist Jon Sanders brings his eclectic sounds to NZ for a two month nationwide tour starting October 2019.

Featuring 12 tracks that explore the world of sound in the Celtic Folk, Afrofunk and Kirtan genres, Nada Brahma (meaning the word is sound in ancient Hindu) is 5 years in the making and has some world class artists guesting on the tracks. We are stoked to have him playing at the intimate Back Room Venue in Thames.

Jon Sanders has developed a unique world music sound and style that evokes diverse cultures in a "quantum leaping" way, so says the Irish Times. Playing the bass mandola and the 8 stringed, guitar-bodied guizouki, Jon uses a 2nd pickup to add bass lines to create a depth and colour to his compositions, which draw on Celtic, Arabic, African and contemporary styles. Add a percussive stomp and emotive vocals and the sounds soar into a new dimension!

In contrast, he finger-picks an upside-down, variously-tuned uke, giving Mali-inspired rhythms and melodies alongside bluegrass stomp and Celtic/Mexican hybrids. Called the ngoni-uke, the wee instrument sounds harp-like, funky as and a wee bit cheeky. That's why the Irish Times arts section, The Ticket, called his third album- Zoukelele - "a deeply meditative, impishly playful, jazz tinged collection".
