Ajak Kwai and Friends

A celebration for Cultural Diversity Week
About the show
Ajak’s music is inspiring and soulful, infused with funky afro-beats representing the depth and richness of her South Sudanese roots. Her performances are filled with vibrant sounds and her distinctive voice has mesmerized audiences nationally and internationally.
Singing in Dinka, Arabic and English, this special performance will feature her songs from the hit SBS TV series, ‘Sunshine’.
Ajak will be joined on stage by the Brimbank Multicultural Community Choir for a couple of her favourite songs. Interested in joining the choir? Click here for more information.
