MZAZA - THE BIRTH AND DEATH OF STARS

World music favourites MZAZA bring you their brand new show.  More information on their website or, view a YouTube video of one of their performances.

Brisbane based six-piece MZAZA deliver Balkan-French sounds to folk lovers around the world. Lead by enchanting French-Sephardic vocalist Pauline Maudy, this award-winning group of musicians from Bosnia, Latvia, Greece, Turkey, France and Australia has been mesmerising audiences with powerful and inspired performances and recordings. The impressive musicianship of MZAZA – deftly realised with accordion, violin, percussion, double bass and Flamenco guitar – embraces diversity, the old and the new, the familiar and the foreign.

Ghosts spent three weeks in the AMRAP Metro Charts, was feature album on Melbourne’s PBS and spent five weeks in 4ZZZ’s top 20. Ghosts tracks received two Queensland Music Awards (2015, 2016).
  • 2012 - Album release; Journey Over Skin three tracks Highly Commended in the Queensland Music Awards.

MZAZA’s festival highlights include: Cygnet, National and Woodford Folk Festivals, MONA FOMA, Brisbane Festival and Queensland Music Festival.

The Birth and Death of Stars draws inspiration from history’s philosophers and astronomers, leading us on a wonderful voyage through the ether to explore what links us to each other and the world around us in ways that are are poetic, moving and at times funny.

These warm and consummate performers return with a show that encourages us to take a step away from our daily lives and to contemplate our place in the universe. Join this musical ride built on exotic rhythms and melodies.
