Birdz & Fred Leone Present: Girra — Vivid Live
A highlight from the music program of Vivid will be Birdz & Fred Leone Present: Girra - a first-time performance by the First Nations duo.
May 18, 2023
They came together for their cult-hit track 'Bagi-la-m Bargan'. Now, Birdz and Fred Leone are taking to Vivid Sydney 2023. Cousins, proud Butchulla men and frequent musical collaborators, the duo will bring songs from their new project Girra to the Sydney Opera House.
The intimate performance will take place in The Utzon Room of the famed venue. This mid-century space allows artists to have unrivalled proximity to their audience, setting the performances against the backdrop of the spectacular Sydney Harbour.
The show is a must-see for hip hop fans — a world premiere of a new musical project from two of the country's most exciting artists, celebrating the Butchulla culture and language with Bridz delivering his classic 90s-tinged rap and Leone offering his commanding vocals to these songs.
This will be the first time the general public can hear these songs, with Bridz and Leone premiering the project via this show, followed by a slot on the RISING lineup down in Melbourne.
