Chantal Mitvalsky will perform with Cannonball at the Melbourne Recital Centre on Friday, October 10.

Working under stage name Skycha, Chantal’s current record displays her skill of integrating traditional jazz music with elements of hip-hop, soul and contemporary R&B.

“I’m interested in exploring jazz and how that mixes with neo-soul music, R&B and elements of electronics and hip hop that belong to now but pays tribute to things past, present and future,” she said.

Appearing this October with jazz/groove ensemble Cannonball, Chantal will demonstrate her interest in mixing genres to create a unique sound.

“When composing for this record, I wanted to draw on all of the music that I love to listen to and create a sound that isn’t easily identifiable by a clear-cut genre,” she said.
Chantal will be joined on stage by Melbourne musicians Kumar Shome on guitar, Sam Zerna on bass, Hugh Harvey on drums, and special guest pianist
Sam Keevers.

The Melbourne-based vocalist and composer has worked with a groups from a range of musical genres such as The Cat Empire, The Meltdown and Jackson Jackson.

Cannonball plays blends of soulful classics that are infused with jazz and blues influences, and is inspired by the late Julian “Cannonball” Adderley.

The performance is part of the Recital Centre’s Mood Indigo program, which is dedicated to exploring the genres of jazz, blues and their offspring (funk, soul, fusion and pop). Mood Indigo features intimate concerts from Australian and international jazz stars.
