Fresh, non-binary duo, Kandere, will perform at Mana, part of Darebin Music Feast.

‘Mana’ means ‘spiritual power, authority, prestige’ and so the event aims to hand the the mic to emerging musicians who are any of queer, femme, non-binary, First Peoples, Pasifika, or people of colour.

Kandere is comprised of music duo Lakyn Tarai and Wahe Kavara whose act is deeply rooted in shared Melanesian (Fiji and Papua New Guinea) ancestry and queerness. They have a creative synergy of music: the composing and producing of Wahe with the dynamic vocalist rapping and melodies of Lakyn.

Mana is curated and produced by Daisy Catterall – DJ, singer, feminist, zine publisher, speaker and queer identity – under the mentorship of Bexx Djentuh. Other performers will include KAIIT, P Unique (with DJ Mz Rizk), PICAA Choir and Neil Morris.

Also on the Music Feast bill is the opening party featuring one of Australia’s leading Aboriginal bands, Coloured Stone with special guests including Shane Howard, Kutcha Edwards, Bart Willoughby and Yung Warriors.

The Megaphone Project is an interactive installation featuring twenty-five striking red megaphones which collect voices that then return unexpectedly via a custom wireless network. The installation will appear at five different sites across the municipality throughout the Feast.

The Darebin Music Feast happens between 12-22 October at venues around Darebin.
