25 November: Mara & Llew Kiek in Bangkok for fundraising event

 

In November 2017, Mara & Llew head off to Bangkok to perform at a major fundraising event in aid of South East Asian Action for Diabetes organisation A4D.

A4D is a UK based charity whose aim is to save and transform lives in South-East Asia by providing essential support to young people with Type 1 Diabetes. They have chosen to work in South East Asia because thousands of young people with Type 1 Diabetes still die every year in the region due to poor diagnosis and insufficient treatment opportunities.

Award-winning Australian world music performers Mara & Llew Kiek are well known throughout Australia and Europe for their ground-breaking music projects with the Mara! band and Martenitsa choir, including their 2015 tour to Italy for performances of their stunning Italian song cycle Tra Parole e Silenzio with local Italian Choirs. Asian audiences have also experienced Mara & Llew’s fresh approach to traditional music through Mara! live performances for WOMAD (Singapore), Musica Viva (Hong Kong, Singapore, Laos & Vietnam), Taipei Arts International (Taiwan), ABC Radio Australia (China) and Mara! CD releases in Japan.

On this occasion, A4D has invited Mara & Llew as a duo to present an eclectic mixture of Italian music, from traditional folk tunes to medieval songs and original compositions for an Italian focus event at the Bangkok Sheraton on Saturday 25 November 2017.
