Over the years we have had the chance to interview some incredibly interesting performers simply by initial bumping into them on the streets of Sydney and Melbourne and this man is certainly no exception to that rule. Introducing travelling Japanese busker Vogli Bonze.
First spotted by one of our crew in Sydney, we were lucky enough to have the musician in our studios this weekend to speak about his music, his influences and what brought him to Melbourne.
Vogli Bonze uses a rather interesting technique of singing, its more of a Mongolian chant that, as he explains in our podcast, uses two different levels of sound to create the noise that he presents in his performance.
Melbournians should be lucky enough to spot the man doing his thing on the streets of Melbpourne in the coming weeks before he again makes his way to New York for another run, he usually sets up shop in the Bourke Street Mall, or just to the side of that on Swanston Street to the left of the Telstra Shop. If you can't make it to Melbourne to see him, there's always our podcast below! Special thanks to our translator Taka for making the magic happen and to our partnerships coordinator Katy for arranging for Vogli to come into our studios.
