Join us at MPavilion for a spectacular musical showcase of Shepparton’s dynamic and culturally rich creative communities—a true celebration of regional talent and the compelling stories found therein.
Presented by Multicultural Arts Victoria, this diverse and exclusive show presents some of the most exciting new contemporary voices coming out of Shepparton, including: Ignite Sound Project, a crew of young and emerging artists sharing their self-produced beats and rhymes, and stories of struggle and resilience, in the result of a unique music mentoring program in partnership with St. Paul’s African House; Know Your Roots, a grassroots movement of young Pasifika culture-keepers reconnecting with the songs, rhythms and dances of their homelands, bringing to life the mana of traditional Māori haka and grace of Samoan siva and sasa; plus PolyFusion Soundz, a newly formed Pasifika big band bringing together a rock-solid rhythm section with powerful vocals and harmonies to deliver a truly powerful soul and gospel experience.
You won’t want to miss this explosive showcase—come along, bring your friends and soak up the artistry of some of Shepparton’s finest, right here in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.
This event is part of MPavilion’s inaugural regional program. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
