We are very pleased to announce the next Rock-A-Bye Baby session with Bashka - dance music from the dirt streets.

Drawing their inspiration from the vast ocean of Turkish music, Melbourne based group Bashka are creating a new genre which slips between east and west with natural ease. Musically spanning two continents and many centuries Bashka explore the contrast between east and west, composed and improvised, original and traditional, acoustic and digital.
The group was created in late 2014 by Murat Yucel and Alisha Brooks (Unified Gecko, Baro Banda) both of whom have toured extensively throughout Turkey, Europe and Australia.
They recently joined forces with ELFTranzporter and their live performances are energised with a truly new sound combined with the delicacy of traditional Turkish instruments and master players. Live samples and loops merge seamlessly with ancient acoustic and modern western instruments to create music which brings to life old folk songs, gypsy ballads and dance music from the dirt streets of old Turkey.

PBS’ Rock-A-Bye-Baby Sessions are for adults and kids alike and feature artists from all genres and cultures. It’s our way of helping breed the next generation of punters in music-mad Melbourne. While we do our best to keep the music at a suitable rock level for kids, we recommend bringing ear protection for the littlest ears just in case.

Rock-A-Bye Baby is a no-frills, daytime show for families of all ages and your chance to see a real band without fear of sugary drinks or costumed characters. PBS’ Rock-A-Bye-Baby music sessions welcome noise, encourage crawling and expect dancing!
