PRIHASTI / VARDANEGA QUARTET
Both originally from Indonesia and Australia and now based in New York City, Nic Vardanega and Francesca Prihasti are emerging voices on the international jazz scene. With each being an established composer in their own right, their music draws from a wealth of original material in addition to a deep knowledge of the jazz tradition, which they render with fresh modern interpretations. They will both make their debut at ShapeShifter Lab, presenting compositions from recently composed materials.
