%u201CMusic is the language of us all!%u201D, The Cat Empire declare on their debut self-titled album. The six-piece emerged in 2001 from Melbourne, a multicultural hub with a vibrant music scene that rewards the musicians who take risks. Their shows are a fresh and improvised blend of rhythms, sounds and attitudes drawn from Australia, Cuba, Jamaica, Africa, Europe, the Bronx and Spain. This eclectic musical mix is unique to the band, crisp and contemporary. This is a house band for a cafe of the imagination.

With a popularity spread largely through word of mouth, The Cat Empire have heated up tiny jazz clubs through to huge festivals in Australia and overseas. They%u2019ve been nominated in jazz awards, won music competitions and grants to support their vision, and toured extensively.

In the UK, their track %u201CTwo Shoes%u201D was on high rotation on BBC Radio 1, they were featured in a BBC4 TV documentary about the 2003 WOMAD festival and they headlined the LateNLive show for 16 nights at the Edinburgh Festival in 2002, returning again in 2003 to larger and crazier crowds. In mid-2003, they performed through Singapore and Malaysia.
