Peninsula Summer Music Festival
The Rhythmic East – Matt Stonehouse Ensemble
Pensinsula Summer Music Festival returns to Port Phillip Estate.
Thursday 7 January 2016
Discover the intoxicating rhythms of the Middle East as leading percussionist Matt Stonehouse and friends create a beautiful blend of frame drums, Arabic vocals and the oud playing of Yuval Ashkar. They create a unique musical connection with the incredible Javanese vocals of Ria Soemardjo, one of the only Australian performers of this highly ornamented and soulful vocal style, and Pin Rada, the Australian-based, multi-instrumentalist musician, music producer and world traveller who speaks five languages and has travelled extensively through the Eastern World to study a range of rare and complex Eastern bowed and wind instruments. This outstanding event fuses exceptional music, landmark architecture, fine food and wine.

Noi e Vicino Noi - Us and Near Us
We’re raiding our kitchen garden, the beef will come from our neighbour’s paddock, the wines will be our alone. A perfect Sunday lunch, with views over the vineyard to the sea.
In the beautiful surrounds of Port Phillip Estate, begin with the exploration in the glass of wine produced from a single site over three vintages. Then settle in to enjoy lunch, overlooking the undulating vineyards where vintage will almost be upon us. Our kitchen garden will contribute vegetables, fruit and honey to the menu. Speckle Park beef will come from our neighbour. Lunch includes a glass of estate wine.
