Listen to Wandering through Wurundjeri Songlines and representation through rapping with JamarzOnMarz33:0525 November 2020

Every autumn and spring, the FUSE festival transforms Darebin into a dynamic hub of creativity. The festival ignites the suburb, bringing together artists, the community, and audiences to visit the parks, theatres, galleries, and other public spaces. Yorta Yorta artist & Project Curator of Wurru-Wurru, Allara Briggs Pattison joins Areej to talk about the exhibition, combining the work of six local artists to create brand new works inspired by the theme of Wurru-Wurru, which means “Sacred Kingfisher” and “sky” in Woiwurrung language.

Sydney-based rapper, JarmarzOnMarz is operating in largely uncharted waters being an openly gay male rapper but that hasn’t stopped him from expressing his views over rap, R&B and afrobeat influenced instrumentals. He joined Areej to discuss his new latest single and music video for Tomorrow, a straight to the point masterclass with lyrics that switch between English and Swahili as he sings about queer love in an ode to his current partner.
