News, 12 Jun 2014Oz Singer Gyan Benefits RCBUS to Assist HIV/AIDS Clinic

Gyan will appear at Betel Nut June 13

“Gyan” – the stage name for talented and charismatic performer Gyan Evans – is coming to Bali for a single night performance on Friday, June 13, 2014 at the Betelnut Restaurant on Jalan Raya Ubud.

Partial proceeds from the performance will go to Rotary Club Bali Ubud Sunset to assist Bali Peduli’s HIV/AIDS Testing and Treatment Center in Sayan, Ubud.

The Australian singer-songwriter will be performing in Bali with her partner and producer Simon Greaves.

Winning a local talent search contest in the mid-1980s, Gyan signed with Warner Records where she debuted her self-titled album in 1989 that made it to the top 30 on the ARIA Albums Chart and contained the single “Wait” – a song that climbed to the top 20 on the ARIA Singles Chart. In 1990, Gyan won the “Best New Talent Category” at the ARIA annual music awards.

Gyan music style is highly individualistic with hints of Appalachian folk, cabaret bravado and occasional musical forays into symphonic sketches. She is unsatisfactorily compared to Joni Mitchell and Sufjan Stevens. Her music is acoustic and minimalistic, a superb voice lovingly shadowed by pianos, guitars and strings.

After a worldwide musical sojourn that included the U.S.A. – including singing with Ricky Martin – Gyan is back home in Australia and a most active recording and performance schedule.

A musician who is in constant metamorphose, arguably Gyan’s most notable album to date is Superfragilistically …a collection of beautiful neo-gothic tales and off beat chamber folk magicallly conjured with her husband Simon Greaves.

Admission tickets to Betelnut  for the concert is only Rp. 100,000 (US$8.70) with the doors opening at 7:00 pm and music commencing at 8:00 pm.

Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended and those who arrive early are destined to get the best seats.

Partial proceeds from the performance will go to Rotary Club Bali Ubud Sunset to assist Bali Peduli’s HIV/AIDS Testing and Treatment Center in Sayan, Ubud.
