Music ∙
9 February @ Chevron Gardens, Elizabeth Quay ∙
Presented by: Perth Festival ∙

We open the Gardens this February with a hot new wave of contemporary artists – soulful innovators  who fuse  tropical beats and infectious grooves that transcend time.

Electric Fields,  a duo of grinding electro-pop splendour, show us why they are tipped as the hottest new act in the country. With an angelic lead vocal evoking  Anohni and  Sia in each spine-tingling  crescendo, they’ll take you to dizzying heights.

Kicking off the evening we present Kardajala Kirridarra, a troupe of women from the sand hills behind the remote community of Marlinja, in the Northern Territory. Combining ethereal voices with hip hop and electronica, in collaboration with producer/multi-instrumentalist Beatrice Lewis, these women will explode your concept of Country.

Closing the night are maestros Skinnyfish  Sound System,  remixing their catalogue of masters  with live didj  and  beat poet who  throw  Arnhem Land  rap with flair.
