They will be joined by the amazing George Telek, with special guests Tabura and their unique blend of traditional and contemporary music genres. Fresh from rocking Port Moresby in front of a 20,000 strong crowd, Tabura is the new voice of West Papua. This group of West Papuans, Papua New Guineans and Australians are united in their cause, and hope to strengthen civil resistance in West Papua through the power of music.
Supporting the fight for freedom in West Papua, this concert aims to break the silence on 50 years of genocide in that region and will raise funds to aid this cause.
‘This is not the struggle of West Papuans alone, but for all those who believe in respect for other human beings and reverence for this beautiful planet on which we all depend for life.’ - John Rumbiak, West Papuan human rights leader.
‘…One of the nation’s most refreshing voices. Natalie Pa’apa’a is sounding like a natural successor for Lauryn Hill’s onetime girl-power crown.’ - Rolling Stone.
