Songs inspired by European Migration Stories 

Early to mid 20th Century Europe was a hotbed of musical styles and modernity, with the old world of waltzes, polkas and mazurkas crashing headlong into the new world of swing, rhythm’n’blues and rock’n’roll.  

Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen take this musical landscape as their jumping-off point.
Over their many years touring together, the group has developed their own distinctive Euro-Roots sound and a high calibre live show that has seen them play to huge audiences from the Sydney to Budapest, Edinburgh to London’s West End. Winning multiple awards and critical acclaim they have developed a die-hard national and international fanbase.  

Hydro Tasmania and the Legacy of Migrant Families

 

‘After the Flood’ is inspired by first-hand stories of the people who left post-war Europe in the 1950’s and ‘60s to work on the Australian Hydro Schemes.

For Festival of Voices 2022,  the group will adapt their show to explore the legacy of those who worked on the construction of those early schemes and the impact this has had on their lives and families.

The music is melodically rich, the playing evocative and the subject matter both local and universal in nature.” 

 The Music

“A heady mix of Eastern European klezmer, gypsy and Balkan music, cabaret, comedy and even a dash of spaghetti western…the kinds of characters you might find in some fictitious Balkan dive, reveling in the high camp theatre of it all.”
