Singout Sista presents: Ajak Kwai and Senayt Mebrahtu in concert
30 Aug 2013 | Friday 7:30pm to 9:30pm
Two strong female African voices will open up our Singaout Sista concert series, Ajak Kwai and Senayt Mebrahtu.
Ajak Kwai is the rare voice of an African woman in Australia. She is a singer, songwriter and story teller. Ajak has a haunting melodic voice, to listen to her is to experience this dark continent in all its colours, rhythms and mystery. Her distinctive voice and vibrant afro soul style songs have seen her in demand with many festivals including Byron Bay, Apollo Bay, National Folk Festival, Port Fairy, Melbourne International Festival.
Ajak’s concert will be supported by Senayt Mebrahtu, a passionate performer born in Ethiopia, with a successful career in disciplines such as dance, music and theatre. She’s the creator of the Abyssinian Dance Group and she’s currently in rehearsal for ‘I Am Here’, a theatre production by Multicultural Development Association and Queensland Theatre Company.
