Kavisha Mazzella is an ARIA award winning singer songwriter who first came to national attention with her appearance in the Franco Di Chiera documentary The Joys Of The Women in 1993.

Drawing on her rich multicultural heritage she creates contemporary songs with haunting melody and lyrical depth.

Since the late eighties, Kavisha has been collecting Italian popular and folk songs remembered by Italian migrants arranging them in Choral form to be sung and kept alive by the choirs Gioie Delle Donne (Joys of The Women) in Fremantle West Australia and La Voce Della Luna (Voice Of The Moon) in Melbourne Victoria. She also directs community choir The Moon's A Balloon for people whose lives are touched by mental illness which is sponsored by Mental Illness Fellowship Victoria and United Nations Of Song a multifaith/multicultural choir from Manningham City Council.

For the Cygnet Folk Festival masterclass, Kavisha will teach songs to be performed during the procession and in St James’ Church to welcome the pilgrims after their two day walk. The attendees will also be invited to perform in a special concert during the Festival.  Fri 6 Jan 11am - 3.30pm.
