Eamon Dilworths – VIATA Album Launch (Canb)

Viata is the new self-release by Sydney trumpeter Eamon Dilworth (Tijuana Cartel, Ed Kuepper, Low Down Riders). A pensive soundtrack capturing the mood to life experiences.

The album concept stems from a trip to Romania encountering a new city with a different way of life, morales and stories. Viata means “Life” in Romanian, in terms of how we continue to exist and simply be. Learning to live with ourselves as we are.
“The trip opened me up to consider who I am, where I come from & how I deal with experiences and challenges.. My musical output changed from this day to seek a deeper connection through my music and performance leading me to attempt to create soundtracks for my challenges in coming into adulthood.”

WHEN: 26th July, 7 – 10pm

WHERE: Smith’s Alternative : 76 Alinga St, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory 2601
