ADELAIDE CITY OF MUSIC’S NORTH AMERICAN SHOWCASE 2024

 

One of the world’s most prestigious arts centres and home of the MET Gala, the New York Philharmonic, and Juilliard, New York’s Lincoln Centre  for Performing Arts is hosting a showcase of South Australian First Nations Artists.

Adelaide City of Music is thrilled to announce that the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts has invited First Nations artists Electric Fields and Dem Mob to perform at their Summer for the City program on June 22.

In collaboration with UNESCO Adelaide City of Music, this highly anticipated event offers New Yorkers a chance to experience the future of music with the world’s oldest culture.

Fresh from representing Australia at Eurovision 2024, Electric Fields, featuring the rare and transcendent voice of Zaachariaha Fielding and the brilliance of producer Michael Ross -will showcase their unique blend of soulful pop, epic-scale electronic works, and intensely intimate storytelling.

DEM MOB will bring their dynamic performance and lyricism to the birthplace of hip-hop. Before landing in New York, DEM MOB are set to speak and perform at the International Indigenous Music Summit in Toronto about their experiences and vision for music and education.
