Autumn in Your Gardens




AUTUMN VIBES

Sunday 9 March 2014, 10 am to 4 pm

Free multicultural music & festivities, linked to the countries of origin of plants in the Garden

Launching Autumn in Your Gardens 

Join us for Autumn Vibes when we launch the Autumn in Your Gardens festival and celebrate our connections to plants from across the globe.

Plants: we need them!

  • Life without the coffee beans of Ethiopia - unbearable
  • Life without the wine grapes of Georgia - unthinkable
  • Life without aspirin from willow trees - painful
  • Life without rice - unimaginable

Each year we focus on a particular region and this year we will be highlighting our African plant collection. The Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney will come alive to the exciting beat of African drums, magical voices, contemporary and African dancers. Autumn Vibes will also be featuring our plants from Asia and Australia.

Gaia Rhythm Show

From the ancient sounds of the Mongolian mountains to the ruins of the Maltese temples the voices are sung across the lands ...

The Gaia Rhythm Show is a mesmeric encounter with another world. A story of what it is to be human and the relationship between man and Earth, an awareness that our planet is forever changing, an adapting organism that we are all part of.

Featuring rare and rich virtuoso talents with music that has a language of its own, the show has a World Music flavour with similarities to Enigma & Deep Forest. Whilst the stunning acrobats, aerialists and dancers dressed in beautifully crafted costumes invariably draw comparisons to the performances of Cirque du Soleil.

On Sunday 9 March, the line-up includes Angela 'the Chameleon' - the World Pop Opera Vocalist with a 4 octave range, Buku - Australia's only Mongolian Throat Singer & Horse Fiddle player, Kaija on Cello & Vocals, Keys with Michael, Drums & Percussion with Peter, along with the talented Adagio Acrobats, Kea & Simon.

Drum Beats

As part of the Royal Botanical Garden's Autumn Vibes festival Drum Beats will performing the ever popular African Drumming & Dance show. In Africa music is part of daily life in fact it is the very fabric that holds communities together. Music is played to help promote work, at important events such as weddings, initiations, blessings, funerals & healings. The village griot (musical storyteller) is entrusted to provide the appropriate rhythms & music for these occasions. On 9 March the Drum Beats performers will include Yacou M'Baye and Fode Mane who come from families who uphold these storytelling traditions.

The show features rhythms traditional to Senegal (West of Africa) performed upon Djembe, Dunun & Sabar drums. These drums are hand crafted from hardwood with animal hide stretched across the playing surfaces. The trees most commonly used are lenke (Afzelia africana), djalla (Khaya senegalensis) and dugura (Cordyla africana) trees.

To further enrich the experience Drum Beats will be providing 50 drums for the audience to participate at the conclusion of the show!

JFC African Choir

The JFC African Choir is a group of wonderful singers and musicians from the  Republic of Rwanda, Republic of Burundi, United Republic of Tanzania and Democratic Republic of the Congo. They will be performing traditional African songs accompanied by drums. A beautiful finale on the main stage.

TaikOz

Hear the thunderous rhythms of Australia’s premier taiko (Japanese drum) ensemble playing a range of drums including the giant 2.5-metre-high odaiko drum.  Not only will you be able to listen to the drums but members of the audience will be invited to participate in a workshop to try their hand at playing the drums!

Since 1997 TaikOz has developed a reputation for dramatic performances that couple explosive energy and extreme dynamism with refinement and grace. Combining the visceral power of the taiko with the ethereal sound of the bamboo shakuhachi, TaikOz is exploring a synthesis of East and West, old and new.

TaikOz has collaborated with some of the world's finest artists, including world-renowned taiko greats Eitetsu Hayashi, Eitetsu Fuun no Kai and Kodo, percussion group Synergy, didgeridoo virtuosi Matthew Doyle and William Barton, theatre director John Bell and The Bell Shakespeare Company, choreographer Meryl Tankard, composers Andrea Molino, Gerard Brophy, David Pye and Graeme Koehne, and the Sydney, Melbourne, West Australian and Queensland Symphony Orchestras. TaikOz has also collaborated with major festivals in Sydney, Brisbane, Tasmania, Adelaide and Perth.

For the Autumn Vibes performance TaikOz will be using the full range of taiko from the smallest which is the high-pitched shimedaiko to the odaiko (grand drum). They will also be playing medium sized slung drums which are called okedo. These allow for a high-energy/mobile style of playing. Most of the taiko are made from the Japanese elm called keyaki (Zelkova serrata), which can be seen in the Garden on the lawn just below the Vista Pavilion.

For centuries Taiko have been performed outside in nature. The sounds blend so that the performance becomes part of the garden and there is no discernible difference. 

Shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) played by Riley Lee

Shakuhachi Grand Master Riley Lee has been instrumental in creating a professional presence of traditional Japanese music in Australia and introduced the shakuhachi to a diverse audience as both a soloist and with other performers of such instruments as harp, cello, saxophone, tabla, guitar, didjeridu, and symphony orchestra. In 1980, he became the first ever non-Japanese shakuhachi dai shihan (Grand Master). Over 50 of his recordings have been released on international labels.

In 1997, he co-founded TaikOz with Ian Cleworth and the Australian Shakuhachi Society with Patricia Lee.  Riley performs regularly in Australia and abroad, both as a soloist and in collaboration with other musicians, notably harpist Marshall McGuire, Trikaya, Synergy and TaikOz.

The shakuhachi bamboo plant (Phyllostachys bambusoides), can be seen in the Garden (bed 141a) just above the sculpture by Chris Booth, not far from the Vista Pavilion.

Michael Duke - saxophone and David Howie - piano

First performing together in 2008, Duke and Howie have made the impetus for their duo the presentation of exciting and innovative chamber music.

Meeting as colleagues at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, the Duo is frequently featured on the conservatorium’s concert series.

As well as performing regularly across Australia the duo has also appeared in concert throughout the world.

The Zoo Boyz

The Zoo Boyz is an exciting and vibrant new children’s band from Sydney, Australia with the ability to entertain and educate young audiences and their families through their music and adventurous tales. The five, talented Zoo Boyz understand the magical and crucial role that music plays in the development of young children. While their animal characters add to the fun and enjoyment, the music captivates both the younger audiences and their families alike. The music is designed to foster the imagination of children that is all too frequently stagnated due to an over indulgence in computer games and television.

The audience is ecouraged to engage and mimic their actions, and be transported on a fun adventure around the world.  Along the journey, the children learn about incredible animals and cultures while being encouraged to be creative and participate both individually and as a group.

As an added bonus, good moral conduct and values are also promoted, in a fun and practical manner throughout the journey.

Throughout their performance, The Zoo Boyz tell the story of how four of the five 'animals' in their group were all bound for Zoo enclosures. They were curious to find out about the world around them but could only do so by using their imaginations. This changed, however, when 'Luke the seal' arrived all the way from the Galapagos Islands. He brought with him a beautiful and magical shell from deep within the Pacific Ocean. This shell now gives the five animals the ability to travel anywhere in the world that they all wish to explore.

The wonderful and daring adventures are now a daily occurrence but the Zoo Boyz must be very careful that they are back in their enclosures by sunset, before 'Zephyr the Zookeeper' does his evening check!

All members of the Zoo Boyz appreciate the positive influence and feeling of well-being that music can bring to everyone, including children from a very young age. The music is contagious, and often it is the adults that dance along, as much as the young one’s!

With popular songs like 'Shake it Like a Jellyfish' (peaked at No. 1 on the Children's iTunes charts), 'Does a Cow know How to Fly?' and 'Giraffe', it is a truly unique show and not to be missed!
