I would like to recognise the efforts of the organisers of the Pathways Music Festival, and their venue, Pratten Park Bowling Club Ashfield, for hosting yet another fantastic festival, building on the success of last year. Pathways Music Festival is an annual event organised by Sacred Currents, that prides itself on hosting the "next wave of culturally diverse artists". The festival this year was held on June 18th from 12.00 p.m. – 5.00 p.m., and was a free and family friendly event and activities included a jumping castle, with Polish Bistro food provided. The line up for this year included: Box of Chocolates – a singing, dancing and storytelling duo made up of Torres Strait Islander songman Murraywa Dow Sailor and talented flautist Chloe Chung; Maissa Alameddine – an experienced vocalist performing multi‑disciplinary works influenced by Arabic, Persian and Western music; Mirko Golub Balkan Jazz Ensemble – A jazz musician of 20 years experience performing Balkan and Latin jazz as well as classical piano; Avaye Rood – A talented quad performing original music infused with the poems of Rumi, and featuring traditional Iranian instruments; and, Dani Blaz & Atihcual – Chilean Australian hip-hop fusing together touches of Jazz and Latin American music.
