A taste of Melanesia
Join us for a night of Melanesian music and culture when WANTOK Musik performs on the weekend of Papua New Guinea’s (PNG) Independence. This showcase celebration is a partnership in community cultural development with the Quandamooka Festival and is an exciting opportunity to experience a coming together of Quandamooka and Melanesian communities, artists and musicians.
There will be a fabulous line-up of contemporary and traditional Melanesian musicians including George Telek (PNG), Charles Maimarosia (Solomon Islands) and Tio (Vanuatu), plus a number of other musicians from PNG and West Papua.
There will also be the opportunity to enjoy some Melanesian food on the RPAC Piazza, and browse the art and craft display in the Concert Hall Foyer, to complete your night of Melanesian indulgence.
