A special World Slide Summit presentation with Lucky Oceans and Praashekh Borkar will feature at the next World Music Café Dinner & Show event, along with the Persian Moaj Trio, at the Mt Lawley Bowling Club Function Room on Friday 21 June 2024.

 Lucky Oceans is a multi-Grammy award-winning pedal steel musician, originally from the US, who is collaborating with Praashekh Borkar, an accomplished Indian sarod musician, originally from Pune in India.
The high-quality creative collaboration features a cross-cultural interpretation of slide instrumentation from diverse musical genres accompanied by a global rhythm section.
“It’s very exciting to musically explore this combination of global ‘slide’ sonic styles with such quality artists,” said World Music Café producer and facilitator, Jon Cope.

The show opens with a wonderful set of traditional Persian music by the Moaj Trio featuring Afshin Darab on vocals, Reza Mirzaei on saz, and Saeed Danesh on daf and tombak.
The World Music Café Dinner & Show experience is enhanced by a delicious South American menu created by Venezuelan caterer, Tamara Rodriguez and her team.
