WMN December Meetup (Perth, WA)
12/12/2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+10RSVP Only
Women, trans, and gender non-binary people in WA music are invited to attend our final Women’s Music Network (WMN) meetup for the year on Wednesday 12 December, featuring a keynote presentation from Grace Barbé.
~~ KEYNOTE: GRACE BARBÉ ~~
Seychelles islander, Grace Barbé is the real deal, a genuinely exotic world music star for the 21st century, with the talent, looks and voice to match. Grace’s soulful music reflects and celebrates the diverse cultural influences of her Indian Ocean heritage. Grace Barbe hails from the sunburnt Indian Ocean islands of the Seychelles, where a colourful history of slavery, pirates, coups d’etat and coconuts have produced a unique Kreol rhythm, language and culture. Drawing from the diverse cultural melange of the islands, Grace’s trio fuses the tropical rhythms and dances of the slaves with psychedelic rock, afrobeat, reggae and pop.
Afro Creole muso sensation and multiple WAMAward winner, Grace Barbé, will be discussing the difference and similarities in the music world of her homeland, the Seychelles, and her current home Perth; the importance of community and mentoring; and her experiences finding her own authentic path to success, in what’s set to be a highly inspiring final WMN’s meetup of the year!
