WA Youth Jazz Orchestra presents Música Criolla featuring Daniel Susnjar | World Premiere | Sat 21 Nov | 6–10pm | Inner Courtyard | Tickets $29.10 from fac.oztix.com.au

Inspired by extensive study and performance in the USA and Peru, WA Youth Jazz Orchestra alumnus Daniel Susnjar has created Música Criolla, a brave new suite of Afro-Peruvian jazz commissioned exclusively for WAYJO.

Bringing together the African, Spanish and Andean influences at the heart of Peruvian coastal music, Daniel infuses them with the explosiveness, intensity, richness and sheer power that only a large jazz ensemble can deliver.

This very special world première event will feature all three WAYJO drummers and the traditional Peruvian cajón, cajita and quijada as the primary percussion instruments.

The WA Youth Jazz Orchestra is Australia’s leading youth jazz orchestra and one of the country’s cultural gems. It provides a unique experience for jazz musicians aged 14 to 25 who are the absolute cream of young jazz players from WA and beyond.
