EAST OF WEST

East of West is a fresh project from players firmly grounded in professional music performance, offering a captivating new take on the fusion between world music and jazz. We play original music with a focus on improvisation, inspired by the music of the Mediterranean and Balkans. The project was formed in order to explore new compositions that showcase the players’ extensive experience playing at both national and international levels.

The trio consists of Bosnian-born Goran Gajić (double bass), Philip Griffin (oud) and Malindi Morris (hand percussion). All three are active in professional music scenes, including world, jazz, folk, & baroque. Goran Gajić plays with and composes for the Queensland Music Award winning band Mzaza. Philip Griffin works or has worked with internationally renowned musicians such as Linsey Pollak, Tunji Beier, Frankie Armstrong and Ross Daly. Malindi Morris has worked with internationally known guitarists ‘Duo Aritmija’ in Slovenia, composing for and directing the project ‘Lastovka’ and was one of the founding band leaders of the Balkan brass band ‘The Transbalkan Express’.
