Nocturnal showcases Indigenous women for special NAIDOC Week event

Featuring Thelma Plum, Mojo Juju and more. 

July’s edition of Nocturnal will feature some of Australia’s most exciting upcoming artists, headlined by Thelma Plum, joined by Mojo Juju and Kaiit, as well as DJ Sovereign Trax who will be performing a set showcasing First Peoples artists.

Thelma Plum will perform music from her dynamic Monsters EP and 2012's breakout EP Rosie.

Mojo Juju with her dynamic and genre-defying sound will also be performing alongside PNG-born Kaiit.  Her jazz/neo-soul roots and classic and contemporary influences make her a formidable new talent to watch out for.

DJ Sovereign Trax will be bringing First Peoples to the front with a selection of tracks set to decolonise our musical horizons and expand our minds.

Jane Harrison of Blak Writers will also be curating a side-stage devoted to poetry, spoken word and storytelling directly from Koorie and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women writers. There will also be expert talks until 8:30pm by Museums Victoria’s First people’s, Conservation and Sciences staff.

It's all going down at the Melbourne Museum on Friday July 6. Tickets are available here
