Origami formed in 2010 and have toured nationally to promote their four acclaimed albums, The Blues of Joy, Karaoke (Nominated “BEST JAZZ ALBUM" 2013 The Age Music Victoria Awards), The Usefulness of Art and Billy Tea to Burgers. They have performed at The Village Festival, Wangaratta Jazz & Blues Festival, Mildura Jazz Food & Wine Festival, Eltham Jazz Festival and presented The Usefulness of Art for the inaugural Peter Blizzard Memorial Concert at the Festival of Slow Music.
Origami’s original material offers a twist on the classic jazz trio setting with a focus on Australian identity, and is augmented by songs by a diverse range of influences including Ornette Coleman, Colin Hay, Merle Haggard, Outkast, Sun Ra, Gotye and the occasional Australian folk song, blending melodic lyricism with a raw energy imbued with beauty, passion and fire.
Tickets will be $20/pp and are available from Lesley's of Griffith, Beelbangera General Store, at the door and on www.firstfridaylive.com.au
