Rapturous and exotic, gorgeous and romantic, passionate and powerful: an ace team of percussion magicians joins Defying Gravity to create musical alchemy in a heavenly world made entirely of sound.  The winners of Triple J’s 2017 Listen Out competition, Feels is a dynamic WA duo blending high-energy percussion with funky melodies and ravishing electronic beats.  Virtuoso percussionist Pavan Kumar Hari introduces dancers and musicians from WA’s Temple of Fine Arts, revealing a mystical world of exotic instruments, seductive timbres, breathtaking images and the overwhelming power of rhythm!

Magic is exactly what this group performs. They’re not just artists, they’re sorcerers-extraordinaire!
