Tash Sultana

Ivy Courtyard

Sydney, AU

April 16, 2017

Courtyard’s annual Easter party at Sydney’s Ivy stepped it up this year with easily one of the biggest lineups in the history of the event.

Leading the charge is one of the hottest artists in Australia right now:

Tash Sultana.

Following a breakthrough in 2016, Sultana has continuously sold out her national shows and continues to do so internationally.

Tash Sultana is a DIY one-woman live show, singer / songwriter, who defies categorization.

Yes, there is reggae, hip hop, indie pop, not quite alternative rock – all rolled up and served as a well-calibrated, seemingly improvised multi-layered mélange with her intricate vocal arrangements and sophisticated pronunciation and intonation as the cherries on top. 

Loose, mellow psychedelic harmonizing with unlikely instrumentals weaves through her songs, yet there is an underlying structure and her radiating presence make the songs come alive and serve as the red thread to the narrative of her very own world.

We are talking vibes.

As in – once you let loose, commit to tumbling down the rabbit hole, do not be afraid to be faced with manic and darker shades and it will be fine.

An ultimately empowering experience.

Sultana began her career in Melbourne, Australia, “busking,” or performing on city streets, which informs her authentic, intense and immersive live performances where she shines and seems totally at ease and peace with herself, no matter if she is beat boxing, singing, playing flute, guitar, trumpet or what have you, all delicately orchestrated and looped together in real time.

She is fearless and it translates in the connection she strikes with the audience.

She self-released her debut Notion on her own label, Lonely Lands Records, which I recommend you to check out for yourself.

For more information, tour dates of her upcoming North American tour and samples of her songs, peep:
