Kavisha Mazella

That wonderful human being and great singer, songwriter, musician Kavisha Mazella is over from Bendigo and will be part tonight of the OPEN MIC night at the Fibonacci Centre in Blinco Street.

Go and have some fun, the pizza oven will be on and the atmosphere at the Fib is always fantastic.

I took this photo of Kavisha while she was having lunch at Kidogo Arthouse today with Joanna Robinson and her filmmaker friend Franco.

LOVE FOR LIFE AND PASSION FOR MUSIC

Posted in fremantle, music by freoview on February 24, 2014

There are probably not many professions that are also people’s hobbies, but it appears to be the case for musicians, and as in my case, photographers.

My mate Alex Millier is a man with real love for his profession. He is a clarinetist at the W.A. Symphony Orchestra, but he does not hesitate to hop on his bike and ride all the way from Maylands to play Jango Reinhardt style gypsy music with his French friend Romain at the Fremantle Markets. Alex also often played at Mondo Markets in Inglewood, not because he needs more money, but because he absolutely loves his profession.

Alex is a versatile and creative man, who speaks a whole lot of languages, is a great cook and connoisseur, and he knows all about coffee and roasting. He was extremely impressed with the coffee we drank at the cafe in the Freo Markets food hall. Try it. Its YUM!!
