Next Occurrence : 23 Oct 2021


Although his primary love is music, local producer Kuya James is not just an artist. From years of experience and leadership, he has created a movement by shining a light on the thriving and important musical heritage of Australia’s Filipino or ‘Pinoy’ communities.

Building a bridge to highlight the similarities and celebrate the differences of culture, Kuya (meaning ‘older brother’) seeks to strengthen Australia’s understanding of their place in South East Asia through music, dance, art and live performance.

With musical influences ranging from traditional rhythms and samples blended with bass-heavy hip hop to retro Filipino pop, Kuya James brings an upbeat party vibe to Lucky Beats that is guaranteed to get the dance floor jumping

This event is part of 'Lucky Beats' - a selection of free music live from Lucky Dumpling Market, Lucky Beats features some of the best local and national music acts performing throughout OzAsia Festival 2021.

Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre's OzAsia Festival
