WORLD MUSIC IN CAIRNS NEXT YEAR – TONY HILLIER’S WORLD OF MUSIC

29 Nov

My favourite Cairns music venue is the Tanks Arts Centre

There’s plenty of history and atmosphere in what was a series of concrete fuel tanks built during World War Two. They contained crude oil that was pumped through underground pipes to fuel Navy ships on Trinity Inlet. They were decommissioned in 1987, and could so easily have been demolished or doomed to become historical artefacts. But the local council bought them and they were eventually converted to their current role –  a really unusual home for visual and performing arts.

One of the highlights on the Tanks calendar is the annual World Music subscription series

Tickets for the 2014 series go on sale on Monday – and Tony Hillier previews some of the acts coming to Cairns on this week’s World of Music. LISTEN here

PLAY LIST

Beautiful Mongolian Horse from the 2012 Hanggai’s album He Who Travels Far

Tu Te Vas from the 2011 Watussi album El Ovido

Closing Time from the 2007 Monsieur Camembert album Famous Blue Cheese

Meridionale from Kalascima’s 2012 album S.Maria Del Foggiaro
