Way Out West’s sound has been described as “utterly unique” and has earned the band a loyal local following as well as invitations to play some of the largest music festivals and venues in the world in countries including, Korea, Japan, Chile, Norway, England, Italy and Canada.
Led by Peter Knight, Way Out West’s intriguing new project features the Sydney based koto virtuoso, Satsuki Odamura and builds on the band’s long history of integrating Asian instrumentation and approaches in a contemporary setting that infuses these influences with irresistible West African influenced grooves and jazz inflected melodies.
In addition to Peter and Satsuki, Way Out West’s line-up for this tour features long-time Way Out West members, Ray Pereira (percussion) and Howard Cairns (bass), along with the exquisite talents of guitarist Lucas Michailidis playing guitars, and drummer James McLean.
