Hear Footscray February Session – Meet the Artists
Agung Mango is a fresh new face on the scene, but certainly no novice when it comes to performing and music. Hailing from the Western suburbs of Melbourne, the 21-year-old rapper draws upon influences from experimental hip hop, alternative RnB, indie rock, spoken word and more. Known for his high energy explosive live shows, he naturally commands the stage with his mesmerising presence. Agung Mango is one to watch and impossible to ignore.
Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Akosia invites her listeners on an eclectic journey of melodic harmonies and meaningful storytelling, exploring the reality of life and love through her music. With sounds influenced by the sensuality of Sade, the expressiveness of Amy Winehouse and the intentionality of Nina Simone, Akosia’s shares her most intimate experiences through soulful vocals.
Gabriel LCR, a refreshing name in Melbourne’s underground hip hop scene, is steadily working his way towards wider recognition. From his participation in local hip hop collective The Stranger Suite, to writing, producing, rapping and releasing his first solo EP in 2019, Underpass, Gabriel LCR is one to watch. His soulful, lo-fi, dream-like approach to hip hop is uniquely served with impeccable flow and delivery.
