ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Born into a movement, The Black Sistaz – Lea, Rosa and Petra Rumwaropen, three West Papuan singers with a powerful message – stand strong for a free West Papua. Upful Island Reggae and Soul meets traditional sounds, language and sweet harmony. Arriving as one of the first West Papuan refugee families, the now Australian based group musically communicates the journey of living a life in exile. A celebration of identity with a strong legacy to continue, their music comes with a message, and with their message comes a movement.
Sugar Fed Leopards are a blazing sextet from the bright side of the disco globe. They have been igniting dance floors all over the world with their heady cocktail of doo wop, disco and rock n roll, for nearly four years and things are just heating up. Expect a cranking rhythm section, bold costumes, sweet dance routines and melt in your mouth harmonies.
