Hello everyone and welcome to Jazz in the Domain. I'd like to begin by acknowledging the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, the traditional custodians of this land.
This is the 28th year of the Festival that Sydney has presented fabulous free concerts here in the Domain in this beautiful setting.
The City is a proud principal supported of the Sydney Festival and I want to thank our co-sponsors ANZ and the Daily Telegraph.
Tonight, we're taking you on a trip to Africa via the rhythms of Mali.
So sit back and enjoy or better, all stand up and dance to Africa Summer Sounds.
