The Melbourne music family and African communities come together for a massive concert to celebrate David Marama’s brilliant contribution to live music in Melbourne. Dave is a key member of The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra and also performs with many other bands in town, including all of those on the line up.
The event features The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra, Ray Pereira’s Afro-Lankan drum ensemble and the township jazz sounds of the Royal Swazi Spa with all proceeds donated to Marama as he recovers from a recent illness. Tickets are available from moshtix.
Highly regarded and well respected in the community, David is an accomplished multi-award winning artist originally from Malawi/Tanzania and has performed alongside some of the world’s best musicians in Africa and Australia. With an illustrious career spanning over more than three decades, his distinctive and ubiquitous guitar playing style can be heard on many fine African recordings.
