February 16 –East of West
+ Ukulele Workshop for Advanced Players
East of West is a fresh project from players firmly grounded in professional music performance, offering a captivating new take on the fusion between world music and jazz. We play original music with a focus on improvisation, inspired by the music of the Mediterranean and Balkans. The project was formed in order to explore new compositions that showcase the players’ extensive experience playing at both national and international levels.

The trio consists of Bosnian-born Goran Gajić (double bass), Philip Griffin (oud) and Malindi Morris (hand percussion). All three are active in professional music scenes, including world, jazz, folk, & baroque. Goran Gajić plays with and composes for the Queensland Music Award winning band Mzaza; Philip Griffin works or has worked with internationally renowned musicians such as Linsey Pollak, Tunji Beier, Frankie Armstrong and Ross Daly; Malindi Morris has worked with internationally known guitarists ‘Duo Aritmija’ in Slovenia, composing for and directing the project ‘Lastovka’ and was one of the founding band leaders of the Balkan brass band ‘The Transbalkan Express’.

UKULELE WORKSHOP – for advanced/intermediate players
This 1-hour workshop by Philip Griffin, is aimed at people who have a good grounding in ukulele skills and want to explore playing in an ukulele ensemble/ orchestra, exploring pieces arranged specifically for ukulele. If you have a good grounding in ukulele and are keen to stretch your skills by playing arrangements made especially for ukulele orchestra, join the fun at this fabulous masterclass! The pieces will work best if there is a good mix of different ukulele types – baritones, low-G tenors, uBass are very welcome!
Philip Griffin is an accomplished performer, choir leader and musical director who in 2019 ran an overwhelmingly successful 3-day ukulele masterclass as part of the Woodfordia Planting Festival Artisan Camp.
