Lionel Bastos, Ronan Skillen & Jono Tait. Three master musicians join forces to create a melting pot of influences, experiences and songs from all around the world.
Lionel Bastos is a multiple SAMA award nominee and SAMA award winner. In 2014 he composed the film score for a local film called “Konfetti” which won awards internationally and locally.
Ronan is inspired by global sounds and grooves from Mali to Memphis and Mumbai. His flair for improvisation began with the didgeridoo, and his later schooling in Indian classical music have shaped a wide palette of textural percussive sounds, incorporating tabla and a hybrid percussion kit. Ronan was co-creator in the music department of the Oscar nominated film ‘My Octopus Teacher’ as well as countless features in Netflix series and other movie soundtracks.
Jono Tait is the songwriter and lead vocalist behind the award-winning band, Hatchetman. Jono has featured on countless theatre productions, tribute shows and musical collaborations. He is a well rounded and incredibly versatile musician.
