Arabesk have been bringing their special brand of global grooves to audiences around Australia since 2003. In 2011 Arabesk won best instrumental track at The Australian Songwriter's Association awards and that year was invited to perform at Takatsuki Jazz Festival in Osaka, Japan for the first time. In August 2016 they released their third album ‘Mr Fi’ and once again a track from the album took out first place at the 2017 ASA awards. 2015-16 were spent touring and playing festivals in Australia and Japan. They performed at the 2015 Takatsuki Jazz Festival and have been invited back for the 20th Anniversary festival in 2018. 2016 also saw them perform at the Sumida Jazz Festival in Tokyo for the first time. Australian festival highlights include Blue Mountains Music Festival and Wangaratta Jazz Festival 2015, Clarence Jazz Festival Hobart, Palm Creek Folk Festival Townsville (with an invitation to return in 2018) and Manly International Jazz Festival Sydney 2016.

A powerhouse of invention and innovation, the versatile sound of Arabesk swings from folk with a rhythmic jazz backbeat to gypsy soul, to a traditional waltz. For those on a journey of authentic musical exploration, not contained by cultural boundaries, the intoxicating global grooves of Arabesk will satisfy your soul. Arabesk are Bulgarian born violin virtuoso Veren Grigorov, gypsy jazz guitar aficionado Rob Shannon, young up and coming jazz bassist Thomas Wade and Michigan born drummer extraordinaire Calvin Welch.
