Feel it all with Nakhane at the Sydney Festival

Spotlight on you. South African singer Nakhane Touré (who performs under first name only) is the embodiment of ethereality, captivating in front of a crowd performing his unique blend of ethnic pop, African soul and synthetics. Wise beyond his years, his lyrics touch on true and challenging experiences growing up queer in Johannesburg, sourcing authenticity in tradition and standing up against strict religious ideologies which bleed into his songs, creating a powerful, emotive experience. For your chance to watch the magic of Nakhane in person as part of Sydney Festival‘s 2019 billing, purchase tickets here and head to the Magic Mirrors in the Spiegeltent in Hyde Park on January 18.
