Local duo ‘KarismaKatz’ release the eagerly awaited album ‘Spirit on the Rise’. Aptly named, the album is a major new work from award-winning musicians, DJ Gosper and Christo Carlsen. The recording of ‘Spirit on the Rise’ took place between April 2007 and July 2008. During this time DJ was recovering from major surgery and debilitating treatment for breast cancer.

The musical union of this remarkable pair has brought into being an album that is deep, thought provoking and profoundly inspirational.

Sunday August 24th, 2pm

Olims Hotel Cnr of Limestone & Ainslie Avenues, Braddon.
DJ & Christo launch Spirit On The Rise, joined on guitars and mandolin by Bob Rodgers, with Ernie Van Veen on guitars & bass and Jon Jones on percussion.

“This album is something special,” says ArtSound FM’s Phil Birch-Marston. “Superb performances… lyrically powerful and thought-provoking… a strong message of getting on with life through adversity… the spirit and adaptability of love shine through beautifully.”

Aha; I went looking for a myspace site but must have done my web search with ten thumbs.

I saw these guys at the Front a few months ago – solid jazz/blues songs interspersed with earthy banter from DJ. It made for a pleasant night out.

Anywhere we can preview a track or two?

DJ is a superb singer/song-writer/musician and those are some very talented musicians on the bill as well. Should be a great gig.
