Sean Mackenzie, Harvest Cafe, Sunday

Sean Mackenzie began playing the piano at the age of nine; by 11 he was performing his original works in competitions and by 15 had started performing professionally with jazz and rock bands. Since graduating from Queensland Conservatorium of Music in 1987 he has travelled widely, composing, performing and teaching. With in?uences from all corners of the world, Sean?s music travels from one hemisphere to another and back again. The beauty of Sean Mackenzie?s music is its undulating melodies, profound harmonies and creative improvisation. Sean ?nds inspiration in the music of Brazil, Latin Americas, Africa, Asia and the European Gypsies. He developed a unique understanding and sound with music, making him one of the exceptional musicians and composers of our time. Multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Sean Mackenzie is an eccentric wizard on a worldwide journey through music. His explorations into less conventional, indigenous sounds have seen him specialise in piano, the exquisite thumb piano (kalimba) of Africa, and the beautiful Brazilian instruments of berimbau and pandeiro.

See Sean this Sunday at the Harvest Cafe in Newrybar.
