The Three Seas

An international, intercultural ensemble, The Three Seas combines contemporary Australian jazz with West Bengali and Nepalese folk music. Soaring Baul vocals, a menagerie of traditional stringed instruments, Himalayan mystique and West Bengali beats are juxtaposed against the deep groove of the baritone saxophone to create an energetic and uplifting musical alchemy.

Led by celebrated Australian saxphonist Matt Keegan, and featuring prodigious Baul singer Raju Das, the remarkable bandmates were drawn together by mutual respect for their distinct and diverse cultural origins and shared passion for creating songs that resonate universally.

A collaborative project twleve years in the making, The Three Seas have released three albums to critical acclaim, touring regularly in Australia and India. Recent performances include The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Nehru Centre London Kochi – Muzuris Biennale, Oz Asia Festival, Indian Museum Kolkata, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Parramasala Festival, and Royal Mumbai Opera House.
