​Art music concerts, highlighting culturally diverse musicians and their music from Bankstown and beyond, will be staged at Bankstown Arts Centre this month.

Kiri Koubaroulis, from Cultural Omnivore, is leading the four-part music series, which starts on Sunday 25 August.

"The intention is to highlight musicians from Canterbury-Bankstown, particularly those who have never played here before," she said.

"What ties the series together is the genre of ‘art music’ and the fact we are highlighting culturally diverse artists and non-western music.

"With Canterbury-Bankstown being one of the most culturally diverse area in Sydney, we saw this music was very relevant to the local community.

"We then applied for funding to the Australia Council for the Arts and were successful, so we’re now able to realise these concerts and pay artists at professional rates.

"All too often artists, especially musicians, are reliant on ticket sales or a door split deal of some sort to be paid, which means their talent and years of experience are undervalued."

The first concert will be a performance by Zela Margossian Quintet, whose music is described as ‘Armenian folk-jazz’.

Other performances will include:

  • Iraqi Folk Fusion Ensemble – Sunday 29 September (5-6pm); 
  • Satsuki Odamura Koto Ensemble – Sunday 27 October (5-6pm); and 
  • Ustad Sayd And Ali Sarshar Afghan – Indian Ensemble – Sunday 24 November 5-6pm).

Each concert is followed by a 20 minute question and answer session with the artist.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 concession. For more information, or to book, visit cb.city/soundlands
