Who runs the world? Girls.

Starting next week and running until April, The Boite will host a series of four concerts featuring outstanding women in the music world.

The first iteration will see the teaming of fingerstyle guitarist Rose de la Montaña and poet EA Gleeson for Words and Tunes. Taking place on Wednesday February 26 at Magnet Gallery, the event will coincide with the gallery’s annual exhibition of female photographers, highlighting various mediums of storytelling and art.

The second event will see Portuguese singer-songwriter and Eurovision Song Contest 2017 winner Luisa Sobral delivering a special performance at North Fitzroy’s 75 Reid Street on Wednesday March 11. In the country for WOMADelaide, Sobral joins the series for an exclusive show.

On Wednesday March 18, a double bill featuring Kavisha Mazzella and Mihirangi will present an evening of genre-diverse tunes sang in English, Italian and other languages and echoing Celtic, Fado and Gypsy influences. Coming to Church of All Nations, the performance will encompass a variety of cultures and sounds in a truly special evening.

Capping off the series, SON – aka Susan O’Neill – will hit The Spotted Mallard with her eclectic fusion of Irish folk, rock, soul, gospel and blues. Happening on Sunday April 5, SON will show audiences exactly why she’s so loved globally, with the likes of Bono having attested to her talent.
