Mzaza is a mystery. This unique and talented group from Brisbane presents a show like no other made up of powerful, sultry multilingual vocals backed by acoustic instruments from faraway places. Jaw-dropping technique and unique compositions have earned them recognition and led them to tour their world fusion across Australia.
While gypsy music becomes all the rage and bands around the world pump Eastern European beats this six piece takes a big step towards originality. Mzaza sets itself apart with its approach to music, its blend of influences and its unusual instrumentation. French frontwoman Pauline Maudy says, “Mzaza has never been about following the trend. We let the music guide us and hope to create a show that transports audiences away from their everyday lives and closer to a world where all these beautiful sound traditions are within reach. We want the shows to be fun and we love it when people dance, but we also cherish the moments when everything stops and it’s clear that we are all transported on the same musical adventure.”
