LIVE MUSIC | LA NICHE CAFE
An individual voice in Australian improvised music, Anthony Schulz has developed and expanded a sound world that shatters all preconceptions of the Piano Accordion. Anthony was a founding member of the groundbreaking ensemble Frock, a group that speaks through the meld of disparate cultures, historical displacement and a vision for the future that is both hopeful and challenging. Frock’s ongoing exploration of improvisation, form and ensemble relationship has led them to produce eight albums and perform their music throughout Australia, Europe and Asia.
Anthony continues to perform locally, nationally and internationally with a number of ensembles including Zulya and the Children of the Underground, Alma Mater (fado), Nick Tsiavos' various ensembles, qoqo8, Rachel Scott, and more.
Yuliya Mik has been singing since before she could walk. Born in the Ukraine, and belonging to a long line of classical and folk musicians, Yuliya grew up with music all around her.

Yuliya has spent her recent years singing fado, a traditional musical style from Portugal, and leads the Melbourne-based group Alma Mater, playing traditional fado with a contemporary twist.

Céd studied Spanish Guitar in Spain and USA and traveled extensively around the world to experience various musical traditions.
He settled in Melbourne in 1994. His dynamic Flamenco and Salsa-tinged, folk-Gipsy melodies has made him a popular and fine ambassador to Mediterranean music through his average 300 performances per year.
Céd feels as comfortable serenading around tables as performing shows on stage, solo or with band "Bric a Brac "(céd Le Mélédo and friends)
His guided tour around Spanish romance and French sensibility, his fingerpicking and percussive drumming of the guitar make his performance a lively and colorful musical experience.
