Cosmo Cosmolino, a Melbourne based quintet of luscious strings and romantic piano accordion, creates exquisite music which crosses between tango and gypsy music, song and dynamic chamber pieces via original arrangements of well-known tunes and original compositions which express dynamism, love, tragedy and capricious play. A musically dazzling and visually enthralling group – the pleasure they derive from playing together is evident to all.

Glenn D’Cruz’s father was an Anglo-Indian — a member of the ‘mixed-race’ community produced by British colonialism. He died prematurely at the age of 53. This multi-media presentation draws on his archive of 8mm films and 35mm slides as well as commercial feature films that represent Anglo-Indians in order to provide an account of his personal experience of becoming a ‘New Australian’.
