Dinkum Bohos, Sphinx Rock Café, Sunday

They met in the darkness of an empty theatre, made secret love on Australia’s most easterly Steinway grand piano, and proceeded to imbue the ether with their sounds: sassy, blue, world tango, gypsy punk, jazz rock, rap, folk mojo. Voila! Vasudha Harte and Jem Edwards in a saucy sonic tryst.

Dinkum Bohos come from a freewheeling bohemian tradition that’s rooted in Australia’s rustic heart. Weaned on travels through the country’s deep and dangerous hinterland and the golden beaches of the east coast, Vasudha Harte and Jem Edwards present an Australian take on music for runaway romantics.

Dinkum Bohos have created a sound that is diverse and intimately their own, drawing upon inspiration from around the world. Vasudha’s distinctive songwriting embraces heart-melting ballads, funky raps and cheeky cabaret. Her singing is mesmerising, telling rollicking stories amidst beautiful melodies that reach rare and powerful heights. An adventurous pianist, she plays with passion and panache.

Guitar whisperer Jem plays stunt steel string, lush sensitive slide and effortlessly cascades and flourishes on Spanish guitar, conveying mind-blowing musical mastery. Together they also weave the magical ambience of the vibraphone, ephemeral percussion and drums into the mix.

A musical tour de force, Dinkum Bohos have wowed audiences with their continual swapping of instruments, surprising changes of mood and humorous extravagant piano four-handers.

The Bohos will be flashing their chops on Sunday at the Sphinx Rock Cafe.
