There's Nothing Like Australia

On my way to VIVA VICTORIA, the 1-day festival at Federation Square to kick off Cultural Diversity Week.
This year’s festival features three stages and a stellar line up of some of Australia’s finest multicultural acts. Enjoy a performance of Ethiopian funk from Dereb & The Ambassadors (NSW) plus sets from popular local acts including Bombay Royale, Vulgergrad, Lady Lash, and Afro Mandinko. There will be spectacular dance performances, extravagant costumes, energetic drumming, Don’t forget to head to the youth stage, Ubuntu, and hear comedy, spoken word poetry, and so much more.

Here’s another one of the acappellas I recorded in last night’s musical haze, this one is a very special and personal tune by Tru Thoughts recording artist KYLIE AULDIST, recorded on the street behind The Night Cat at about 2:30am.
