The night is a community celebration of Brisbane’s own Yenenesh Nigusse, born in Ethiopia, but familiar to probably 1000s of people through her dance performances at festivals and workshops throughout Queensland and Australia over the last 20 years.
Before Yen departs to live in the UK she has invited many of the professional and well known artists she has worked with to create a rich and diverse cultural experience, a night to share the music and dance that she loves from Africa and Latin America, along with original and contemporary hip-hop, dancehall performances.
Please see also our flyer for the night along with a pdf with bios of many of the performers. Each and every one of them has a great story tell!
This is a privately organized community event; proceeds of tickets sales will cover expenses and artists fees only.
