World Music Café will celebrate its second anniversary on Saturday 17 September at the Camelot Theatre in Mosman Park with performances by Kurdish superstar Mesut Med and Hungarian gyspy band Hot Paprika, plus a fabulous banquet by chef Nimrod Kazoom and the World Music Café kitchen team.
World Music Café is a social enterprise that started in 2019 to provide skills development, work experience and social connection for people of new migrant and refugee backgrounds.
The enterprise business model delivers quality ‘Dinner & Show’ concert events featuring an extraordinary diversity of Perth’s top multicultural artistic talent and a banquet meal of international cuisine prepared by chef Nimrod Kazoom and the World Music Café kitchen team.
Mesut Med is a high calibre artist, originally from Kurdistan, and is known as ‘The Man who carries the ancient melodies of Mesopotamia in his voice’. He moved to Istanbul in the late 90’s and migrated to Perth several years ago. He has toured throughout the world in Europe, the United States, and Australia. He writes, records and performs original Kurdish music, and his music and film clips have been played on many Kurdish radio and TV stations. He is also one of the co-founders of the MED Culture and Arts Centre in Istanbul and a former Kurdish television presenter.
Hot Paprika are a lively quartet that play vibrant traditional tunes from the Hungarian villages stretching from the upper plains of modern-day Slovakia through to the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania. Featuring the hammer dulcimer, violin, viola and double bass, the band deliver an authentic Hungarian village music experience with beautiful melodies, energetic rhythms, and an exciting passionate performance.
Nimrod Kazoom is the master chef mentor for the World Music Cafe kitchen team and brings his wonderful fusion of tradition and innovation to the plentiful World Music Cafe dinner banquet. He trained and worked in Tel Aviv before relocating the Fremantle several years ago and has since built a massive following for his stunning artistic cuisine.
World Music Café is a collaborative celebration of local Perth culture and with most shows selling out, patrons are encouraged to book early to avoid disappointment.
