Mashing together speakeasy electroswing-style wonk and live ukelele quirk, this Australian festival sensation turns simple solutions for sustainability into an epic dancefloor experience.
“So infectious that the most ardent climate sceptic would have trouble staying still”- Sydney Morning Herald
…Plus Mal Webb and Kylie Morrigan
Vocal adventurer, multi-instrumentalist and looping beatboxing songwriter Mal sings his brain provoking songs using all sorts of vocal techniques, guitar, mbira, slide trumpet, trombone, chromatic harmonica and a loop recording pedal called Derek. And Kylie (who’s played with Orchestra Victoria and the likes of Stevie Wonder and Barry White!) provides violin and voice in a perfect balance to Mal’s nutsness. Their arrangements are intricate and playful. Imagine Einstein, Dr Seuss and Paganini making pancakes.
“Formidable Vegetable Sound System are spearheading a new and exciting form of musical activism and becoming one of the most important voices in a global cultural movement that began right here in Australia” – Harry Angus, The Cat Empire/Jackson Jackson
… and a raffle with some formidable prizes
