About This Event
“…nothing is more satisfying than stories about people who defied cultural and social conventions to follow their hearts.” 4 STARS
Two trailblazing stars of the Australian music scene survey the forces that have shaped their way.
TZU’s Joelistics and ARIA-nominated producer James Mangohig are icons of Australian hip-hop, but their family histories are as complex and layered as their lyrics. Both half-Asian, their respective heritages are woven through their experiences growing up in Australia.
From a nightclub-owning grandma in an open marriage to globetrotting parents with a political streak, the pair lovingly paint a canvas filled with failed proposals and religious strictures, casual racism and empowerment through music.
Written, composed and performed by Joelistics and James Mangohig
Presented by: Frankston Arts Centre and Contemporary Asian Australian Performance
