Event details

Ajak Kwai’s music is inspiring and soulful, infused with funky afro-beats representing the depth and richness of her South Sudanese roots.

Her performances are filled with vibrant sounds and her distinctive voice has mesmerised audiences both nationally and internationally.

Singing in Arabic, Sudanese and English, Ajak conjures a vivid picture of her Dinka heritage. Music is the vehicle for her stories of extraordinary life experiences as a refugee, exiled from her home and her family. Her moving tales of exile, hope, freedom, love and cows – beloved animals of the Dinka – in turn reflect her optimism and belief in the best of human nature.

Ajak and her songs take us on a journey deeply feminine, unique from the Upper Nile to gospel singing in Cairo to Melbourne. She has successfully fused her African roots with the grassroots of Australian music.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Multicultural Arts Victoria
