Kalyani is the solo emergence of artist and songwriter, Kalyani Mumtaz. After touring for seven years with her pop project Willow Beats (which sold out shows across the country) Mumtaz now presents her songs in their most intimate form. Kalyani will outline Mumtaz’s extensive catalogue with a soft set of vocals and piano.

Squid Nebula
Squid Nebula are a five-piece from Melbourne not afraid to swim against the current. Since 2014, Squid Nebula have been filling deep waters around Melbourne with their paella of soul, reggae, pop and jazz that will really get your three hearts pumping.
In May this year, they released their debut self-titled EP to much acclaim amidst a five-week residency at the Evelyn Hotel and have seen the songs receive airplay across Triple J, Triple R, PBS and receive ‘Song Of The Week’ honours on The Hoist, SYN FM. In August, the band hosted their first mini festival Squid Inc. at The Gasometer Hotel and co-headlined a residency at Cherry Bar for Soul Thursdays. Ink these creatures into your diaries and come swim in the deep end.

The Merindas | Visit the website
Melbourne-based duo, The Merindas, present a much anticipated show unprecedented on the Australian music scene. Jawoyn woman Candice Lorrae from Darwin and Nyoongar Ballardong Whadjuk woman Kristel Kickett from Tammin in Western Australia, discovered their mutual passion for music just six years ago. Since making the move to Melbourne together it is clear these soul sisters are set to trail-blaze their innovative style of Indigenous music. Blending their sultry tones, hypnotising melodies and energetic stage presence, The Merindas will, along with the mastery of Jake Steele’s mixing skills on stage, create an atmospheric fusion of Indigenous, electro tribal pop sounds in an extraordinary presentation.

Mojo Juju | Visit the website
Formidable. Enigmatic. Genre-defying. Fragile. Ballsy. Ambiguous. Raw.
Mojo Juju has been called many things and yet she is forever hard to define. By her own explanation, Mojo has never felt comfortable with being categorised and is increasingly deliberate in avoiding labels and defying genres. As a result, it is only in experiencing her live shows that one can begin to understand the full breadth of this dynamic artist.
‘Native Tongue’ is a fitting title for the third studio album from Mojo Juju and it is her very essence laid bare. It is raw, honest, emotional and intrinsically political. It is also brutal and relentlessly real.
