Sunday Mixtape ft. Seth Boy, Sally Gates & Olivier Holland

/ news

We are pleased to invite you all to watch the Sunday Mixtape featuring Wellington-based, Filipino-born bassist and composer Seth Boy on 23rd of October 2022 at the Opera House, 111 Manners St, Te Aro, Wellington.

Seth Boy presents Farewell, Sweet Stranger at the Sunday Mixtape. This brand new work explores themes of loss, history, colonialism, the sacrifice of culture and the culture of sacrifice.

Merging indigenous Filipino or Tagalog folk, the sounds of Spanish colonisation and drawing from the roots of African American jazz, Farewell, Sweet Stranger expresses the loneliness that comes with separation from one’s family, home or heritage.

Harsh and tender, insistent and impassioned, this Wellington Jazz Festival commission will be performed by Seth Boy and nine of the city’s finest musicians.
