with Hermione Johnson

Audio Foundation is pleased to present one Auckland concert for Sri Lankas BALIPHONICS at the Unitarian Church on Ponsonby Road. They will be joined by master of keyboards, Hermione Johnson, who will perform on the churchs unique 1904 stereophonic pipe organ.

Drawing upon a particular astrological healing ritual known as the Bali Ritual, the music of Baliphonics draws upon the profound and ecstatic ritual music of Sri Lankan culture, providing insight into this rich tradition in a contemporary context. In association with their 2018 New Zealand Tour, the Audio Foundation is proud to present an Auckland event for Baliphonics. Established in 2009, the unique Baliphonics quartet combine the yak bera (devil drum), drum set, and double bass with traditional ritual chant and dance, promises sonically and visually intense, visceral experience for audience members. The group’s latest recording transforms and transports listeners into a traditional the past, while at the same time testifying to the fact that even age-old rituals, struggling to find a place in contemporary, globalized society, embody cultures constant evolution.
