About the event /

For those that need convincing Australia has world class funk, look no further than Melbourne based powerhouse Afro-Beat ensemble The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra! Soul of Sydney are ready to present a special event as part of Vivid Festival 2015 on the 24th of May, at a secret location 5 mins from the CBD, to be released to ticket holders only.

The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra (TPOAO) are a specially hand-picked cross-section of Melbourne’s unique funk, soul and afro-beat scene masterminded by Zvi Belling, Ethan Hill (DJ Manchild) and Tristan Ludowyk, and are signed to Hope Street Recordings.

Influenced by Nigeria and it’s surrounding African nations, the high intensity funk sound produced by the ensemble is an infectious blend of African rhythms akin to Fela Kuti with a dash of contemporary hip hop from scratches to guest MC’s and vocal chants over tribal rhythms.  Remaining faithful, lyrically relevant and respecting the innate power of Afro-Beat and its message, their music will lift the spirit of celebration to new heights that not even the heavens are prepared for such a spiritual experience.

The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra have seen them grace Melbourne International Arts Festival (2008), WOMADelaide featuring Tumi (2010, the Perth International Arts Festival (2011) and Byron Bay Bluesfest (2011).

As with all Soul of Sydney parties, the event will feature Soul of Sydney DJ’s and Friends: Meem (Live) (Back to Funk Radio, 2ser), Mike Who (Stolen Records, Astral People, Pineapple Republic), Stephen Ferris (FBI Radio), Phil Toke (Soul of Sydney), JR Dynamite (Sydney Soul Funk Edit King) + more tba.

The Public Afro Orchestra, Vivid 2015 and Soul of Sydney are ready to cast away any doubt and deliver Sydney from all that is a part of this world, into a place not of the world, and into the promise land of good vibes and healing music. Get ready to raise your hands to the musical heavens!
