Neolithic muse for Skorba

Skorba plays music inspired by the very, very old temples of Malta like the Hagar Qim temple (inset).

Maltese/Australian four-piece band Skorba (pictured) performs original music inspired by the Neolithic temples of Malta (the oldest free-standing roofed stone structures in the world, pre-dating the Egyptian pyramids by 2000 years).

Their show is an audio-visual experience, presenting the music, magic and ancient traditions of the Maltese archipelago, complete with images of the islands and its temples.

Now thats something a bit different.

Skorba is a group of Sydney and Wollongongs finest musicians from Mediterranean, Balkan and Middle Eastern traditions.

The band will perform at the Fountain Room at Lismore City Hall next Thursday, May 1, from 8pm. Tickets are $20/15 and available by phoning 1300 066 772.

Skorba will also play Coorabell Hall on Friday, May 2, from 8pm. Tickets for that gig are also $20/15.
