Mimosa is an Australian born and bred, guitar and violin duo that is of international standard. Its members Phoebe and Morgan met whilst studying with scholarships at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music back in 2009. They tentatively started performing together but very quickly both members were almost exclusively performing together for a wide variety of events every week.
Mimosa originally made their notoriety from their very own stunning arrangements of their favourite classical pieces. Over time, however, Mimosa’s tastes expanded and they now perform music from vastly different genres. Most notably they have become fixated on the wonderful gipsy jazz music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli.
Since their humble beginnings, Mimosa has ‘been everywhere man’! Nationally, Mimosa has toured all over the East Coast of Australia, from local community halls to the highly esteemed Sydney Opera House main stage. However, Mimosa has not just stayed within their homeland, they have performed literally all over the world on cruise ships.
They have also lived in Paris where their music led them to meet some of the gipsy jazz greats and to play in venues that the great Django Reinhardt used to regularly perform. Phoebe and Morgan love performing together, they love it so much that they got married in early 2016!
