The Australian National Maritime Museum’s harbour front café bar Yots is kicking off an event-filled summer season with a free evening performance by Latin Roots singing sensation: the Oscar Jimenez Trio.

Yots Café will host a mini residency from the trio on Thursday evenings – 31 January, 7 February and a special Valentine’s performance on 14 February.

Oscar Jiminez is best known as the lead singer of Aria nominated band Watussi. Fresh from his recent performance supporting Spanish Superstar Manu Chao, his appearances at Yots with his trio will feature his own brand of finely crafted, uplifting songs soulfully inspired by his Colombian roots.

And to fit with the music it will be serving a Latin-inspired menu including a delicious range of Tapas and Sangria (usual full bar also available).

Yots Café boasts one of Sydney’s best views – out across the museum fleet in the foreground, Darling Harbour and Sydney’s towering skyline. It’s easily accessible by Sydney Ferry (Pyrmont Bay wharf), bus (Route 443) train (Town Hall station), monorail (Harbourside stop) or light rail (Pyrmont Bay stop).

And after sunset why not take a walk across Pyrmont Bridge to experience the National Maritime Museum’s major new light show Waves of Migration on its iconic roof? Celebrating the history of migration to Australia, the eight minute show tells the compelling stories of those who’ve come across the seas.

The Australian National Maritime Museum, at 2 Murray Street, Darling Harbour, is open daily 9.30 am to 5 pm. Inquiries Australian National Maritime Museum
