Unabashedly blending beats and grooves from around the world into boisterous horn-powered party tunes, Fat Yahoozah’s sound is as big and bold as their name suggests. This 7 piece group draws its music from styles such as Klezmer, Ethiopian, Balkan and Afro-Cuban, melded into creative concoctions. Led by award-winning composer and trumpeter Ellen Kirkwood, this band boasts some of Sydney’s finest and diversely skilled musicians. Fat Yahoozah are a loveable fun-bunch who will make you feel like dancing!
A series of concerts at Bondi Pavillion co-presented by SIMA and Waverley Council.
