When:

Sat 17 Mar 2018, 8:00pm–11:30pm

With Alárìíyá! and DJ Mike Gurrieri.

Grace Barbé hails from the sunburnt Indian Ocean islands of the Seychelles, where the pressure and heat of a history of slavery, pirates, coups d'etat and coconuts birthed Kreol’s unique rhythm, language and culture. From the cultural melange of the islands, Grace's trio fuses tropical rhythms and dances of the slaves with psychedelic rock, Afrobeat, reggae and pop. With Grace on bass, and younger sister Joelle on drums, they conjure musical magic. Guitarist Jamie Searle casts a spell adding another layer of Afro-guitar sorcery. Grace has been enticing audiences to get up and shake their coconuts since 2009, prepare yourself for a very special show.

Alárìíyá! featuring Olugbade Okunade, former trumpet player from Fela and Seun Kuti’s famous Afrobeat orchestra, Egypt 80, will be shaking the Howler stage with some of Melbourne finest Afrobeat and Local Melbournite, PBS 106.7FM presenter DJ Mike Gurrieri (Mystic Brew), A&R Manager of Equinox Records, will be mixing up some fine and very danceable tunes between acts.
