*Bukhchuluun Ganburged (Bukhu) is a master student of the Music and Dance Conservatory of Ulaanbaatar. Performing the folk musics of Mongolia, and exploring the aural dimensions of sounds generated by traditional instruments and harmonic overtone vocal techniques.
Based in Sydney, Australia since 2009. Bukhu was granted most prestigious Distinguished Talent Visa by the Australian government as an internationally recognised artist with exceptional and outstanding contributions to the arts.
A cultural ambassador of his country. Bukhu combines virtuosic Morin Khuur(Horse Head Fiddle) and Khuumii (Harmonic Overtone Throat Singing) skills to transmit the harmony of Mongolian nomads and Shamanic culture through time and space.
Bukhu’s music brings a contemporary take on the tradition of Mongolian bards of the middle ages and those of ancient times, acting as a national memory bank by working mythologies, historic figures and events into traditional verse form.
***Bukhu's band EQUUS, who were programmed for this date are no longer available due to unforeseen circumstances, To cause the least disappointment, we then invited Bukhu to stay on Solo, and Invited ROSiE to play the 1st set. Equus will definitely appear in the 2017 series of events.

Satsuki Odamura – Japanese koto, Tunji Beier – South Indian percussion, Adrian Sherriff – bass trombone.
A word meaning ‘spring’ or ‘native well’, PRRIM is the name adopted by three exceptional Australian musicians of diverse backgrounds, to encapsulate the vision and thrust of the music they make together.
The music casts a wide net, encompassing a range of traditions from across the world, including: South Indian, Japanese and Indonesian – with a touch of jazz.
True to its name, the ensemble is fresh, alive and spontaneous, focusing on improvisation and original compositions which traverse a broad emotional palette.
Review of Prrim by John Shand SMH
It happens in all art forms, from the ostensibly dubiously-cast actor who ends up stealing the show to the feted children's author who suddenly turns to soft-core erotica.
Improbability especially thrives in music, where massed kazoos can play Led Zeppelin songs or Prrim's instrumentation can consist of bass trombone, koto and percussion.
As bizarre as it looks, in the flesh it sounded entirely natural; almost inevitable. That is partly thanks to Adrian Sherriff, Satsuki Odamura and Tunji Beier being at the top of their respective games, partly to Sherriff and Beier's multi-instrumentalism and partly to the grasp of South Indian (Carnatic) music.
Carnatic music's rhythmic language underpins many of Sherriff's compositions, even if the textures – reaching from the Caspian Sea to the Sea of Japan – are often exotic in an entirely incongruous way.
Among the highlights Autumn Rain opened with a solo koto improvisation that was so stark it was almost confronting, like an inner voice murmuring existential angst in one's ear. Eventually it was joined by its Japanese bedfellow, the shakuhachi, although rather than opting for an ethereal sound Sherriff brought a more breathy, human and expressive one to bear, with Beier playing the zarb, a goblet-shaped drum of Persian extraction.
If this drum felt mismatched on Autumn Rain it came into its own onWuru Wuru, which began with a solo trombone improvisation that showed Sherriff's singular ability to milk the instrument's seldom-heard demure side, before he explored its extreme lower register.
Thereafter the bass koto and zarb joined over a very slow pulse, with Odamura making her instrument growl one moment and then arch up dramatically against Beier's sparse groove and the trombone's drones. Beier created a zarb solo of great subtlety and deftness, the rhythmic and dynamic ingenuity matched by the melodic content, and this, in turn, sparked an enthralling zarb/trombone duet.
Elsewhere Sherriff extended the group's textures with two Sumatran wind instruments, the minute sarunai and the sweeter bansi, complemented by Beier's Indian percussion.
