Abraska, Adam Page and SaSamba
September 1, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Unpredictable & delightful, Abraska creates a unique musical blend that comes from the sound of travel and the merging of different cultures, rhythms & people. Incorporating horns, guitar, bass and drums, Abraska’s style ranges from lyrical Caribbean dance tunes to soaring narrative ballads bedded deep in New Orleans gospel brass and harmonium music with crystal vocals sparkling above. Drawing on a whole world of inspiration they create a new sound pulsing with vibrancy and vitality.
Wrapping their lyrics in global beats Abraska create something new, shimmering with luscious, tuneful appeal.

Expect batucada, bass, brass and boom-bap beats! Together with a full band featuring some of Adelaide’s finest musicians, this will be a night of music you’re guaranteed to have never experienced before.
