Salamanca Jazz’ is Live in the Founders Room on Woobys Lane, with 
Vibración, the newest Latin Sextet, featuring Louise Denson + Kelly Ottaway + Tom Robb + Maggie Abraham + Elias Solis + Hamish Houston.

Ah, Salamanca Jazz in the Autumn.
Summer’s but a distant memory now, so all the more reason to chase away the chills with Vibración, Hobart’s hottest Latin jazz combo!

Louise Denson (piano), Kelly Ottaway (vibes), Hamish Houston (double bass) Tom Robb (drums), Maggie Abraham (congas) & Elias Solis (perc) pay tribute to the classic Cal Tjader recording Live at the Funky Quarters, and cook up some spicy original recipes on the side.

For your musical delectation – and dancing pleasure!
Multi-instrumentalist/composer/arranger Cal Tjader played a big part in the West Coast jazz scene of the 1950s and ‘60s, working with such luminaries as Dave Brubeck, Paul Desmond, Stan Getz and Vince Guarladi, among many others. His album ‘La Onda va Bien’ earned a 1980 Grammy Award for Best Latin Recording. His compositions form an important body of work in the vast cannon of ‘Latin jazz’ repertoire.

Damien Kingston Quartet ‘Harmony’ album Launch
and supported by the Annwen Roberts Quartet

The Damien Kingston Quartet, featuring Matt Boden on Piano, Hamish Houston on Bass, and Tom Robb on drums, has released its latest album ‘Harmony’ on vinyl, and will be launching the record with a live performance.

The music from the group features dense textures, fluttering melodies, and huge walls of sound; rhythmic intricacy and some dramatic harmony shine through in music that prioritises songcraft and resonance.

The Damien Kingston Quartet is an ensemble dedicated to performing original compositions that mix elements of jazz, free improv, and traditional song form. The band has been performing together since 2018 and to date has three albums out; the latest, ‘Harmony’, was released on ABC Jazz and Scratch Match Records.

‘Harmony’ will be available for purchase on the evening [ have a listen at www.damienkingston.com ].

Damien Kingston – Guitar | Matt Boden – Piano | Hamish Houston – Bass | Tom Robb – Drums

The Quartet will be playing material from the new album alongside some new tunes, and will be supported by a set of original tunes and standards from the Annwen Roberts Quartet.

Salamanca Jazz’ is Live in the Founders Room on Woobys Lane, with Nadira & Friends.

Salamanca Jazz launches its 2024 live music program with Nadira & Friends

Nadira is this unstoppable person; Full of energy and enthusiasm. 

Nadira sings with the kind of pure joy that is totally contagious. “Those who have been to her shows knows that this petite, yet commanding, performer has a punk-ish attitude and on-stage banter that could be a comedy act on its own” (Australianjazz.net). 

Over the past ten years Nadira Farid has performed at Clubs and Festivals across Australia, and entertained the audience with her fresh, cheeky renditions of jazz standards and tunes from The Great American Songbook

When the rhythm gets lively, you won’t be able to resist hitting the dance floor and swaying to her upbeat melodies. But it’s in the hush of a ballad, when Nadira’s voice pours out like velvet, that she’ll leave you breathless, holding on to her every note in suspended silence. 

For Salamanca Jazz in February 2024, Nadira will be performing as part of a sextet, accompanied by Aaron Entresz (guitar), Iestyn Parry (piano), Jesse Bowden (sax), Jed Adams (d/bass) and Bruce Innocent (drums).

Doors & Bar open at 7pm

We Are Made of Stardust by artist Michaela Gleave was commissioned for Kelly’s Garden as part of the Three Portraits Project, which explores Salamanca Art Centre’s past, present and future, a project supported by the Tasmanian Community Fund.


The installation explores humanity’s relationships with the cosmos, reflecting on the impact that scientific knowledge has on our understanding of ourselves, and the world around us. Mounted above the audience and addressing the sky, the text looks out beyond the city to contemplate the vast expanses of time and space. Appearing subtle white during the day, the work comes alive at night as the illuminated letters become visible against the darkened sky. Scrolling through the colours of the visible light spectrum, We Are Made of Stardust considers both the limitlessness and finitude of existence; a celebration of the beauty and majesty of the universe.

Accompanying the lettering is a live soundscape from the project, A Galaxy of Suns. Created in collaboration with composer Amanda Cole, programmer Warren Armstrong and astronomer Michael Fitzgerald, A Galaxy of Suns ‘plays’ the stars as they rise and set over the horizon in real-time, for any location on Earth. Treating the Earth as a giant spinning music box, the project connects GPS and time coordinates to data from the Hipparcos stellar catalogue, to create an atmospheric rendering of our journey through space.


Michaela Gleave

Michaela Gleave is a visual artist based in Sydney, Australia. Gleave’s projects question our relationship to time, matter and space, focusing in particular on the changing intersections between art, science and society. Often temporal, Gleave’s works oscillate between the micro and the macro, between the spaces of personal experience and global understanding, allowing us to experience the processes by which we comprehend reality and rethink our presence within it.
