Marten Visser is a contemporary vocalist and pianist with an extensive performance and teaching career.

He loves music and how it gives us a creative way to share stories, emotions and experiences with other people, and it’s been his passion since he was a little kid!

Like most families in the City of Knox, he has found the challenge of being in lockdown with a young family, as well as working full time, quite full on but has used music as an escape – even if it’s in the messy toy room at home!

Tonight, he’s going to share a range of music from Jazz, to pop covers, acoustic ballads and a couple of gospel tunes to help make your Friday night a little more special. So, grab a glass of something nice, sit back and enjoy.

WHEN: Friday 2 October
TIME: 8:00pm
WHERE: Your lounge room!!! View the live-stream on the Knox Arts and Events Facebook page.

They break the traditional paradigm as they are the first all-female Mariachi group in Australia! They cover the traditional classics from artists such as Rocio Durcal and Juan Gabriel as well as composing their original pieces. They are heavily influenced by the female Mariachi group "Flor Toloache" and many more. Their love for Mexican music unites them and creates a rich cacophony of lyrical drama!
