NEW: CAVE in the SKY

CAVE in the SKY

is a three-piece musical ensemble based on the east coast of Australia. The core of their sound can be traced back to their collective individual studies covering a broad range of musical cultures, the most prominent being Western Classical, African Yoruba (Nigeria), Karnatic (South Indian) and indigenous South American (Peru) traditions. The other defining aspects that inform their approach is an instinct for improvisation and the desire to explore beyond established musical boundaries.
