Melbourne based group Bashka have travelled many miles to get to where they are today. Over time they have absorbed their collective musical experiences in Turkish traditional music, jazz and hiphop. Today they are an exciting live act which draws audiences from all around the globe. Their shows are renowned as infectiously danceable with conscious lyrics from their MC’s.
Deeply danceable grooves with horns, guitar and frequent special guests from around the globe, they deliver a fresh sound that is on the move.

Bashka performance at Womadelaide, 2018.
Taking some time to veer away from the larger stages, we found ourselves grooving along to the hypnotic, grinding beats of Melbourne and Istanbul collective Bashka…their performance added a depth and darkness to the festival that cut through its raucous carnival vibes….Losing ourselves in the looping horn section and drums, we danced manically until the end of the set, utterly bewitched by the music’s juxtaposition of the modern and the mystical.
