Ajak Kwai is revered for her powerful performances and as a strong voice for an
inclusive and diverse Australia.

Originally hailing from the small town of Bor on the Upper Nile in what is now South
Sudan, music has always been part of her life.

Performing in English, Arabic and her native language, Dinka, Ajak Kwai’s music
draws upon South Sudanese funk and blues influences and brings together
elements of traditional music alongside more contemporary gestures. The result is
something significant, unique, powerful and uplifting.

Ajak is supported by Guinean fusion/groove ensemble Jarabi Band. Jarabi means
love and love resonates throughout everything the band do.

Please note – this is a standing event, with limited seating available
