“Introducing Mia Palencia with The Rhythm Section”
Prior to calling Tasmania home, at the age of sixteen, Malaysian-born Mia Palencia fell headlong into the music industry. as the one half of well-loved Sabahan Jazz duo, Double Take. Since then she has recorded and released seven albums, toured extensively across Asia and Australia – performing in small cafes, stadiums, and everything in between.
Mia currently teaches songwriting and contemporary voice at UTas Conservatorium of Music. For her debut performance at Jazzamanca, Mia will be groovily supported by “The Rhythm Section” comprising Matt Boden (piano), Hamish Houston (bass), and Tom Robb (drums).
