Music | Tjaka: A Sonic Journey
Hear Tjaka present an improvised sound performance, featuring a new instrumental line-up of Didjeribone (slide didgeridoo), hemp didgeridoo, guitar, and keys.
Fusing electronic and hip-hop with ancestral influences, their music is both contemporary and deeply connected to their Aboriginal heritage and traditions. Tjaka have cemented their reputation as an unmissable live act, performing at festivals nationally and internationally, including Splendour in the Grass, Dark Mofo, and Pasiwali Festival, Taiwan.
This activation is presented as a part of Daniel Boyd: Rainbow Serpent (Version).
We are committed to making the IMA accessible to people of all abilities, their families, and carers, as well as visitors of different ages and different backgrounds.
The gallery entrance is on the ground floor of the Judith Wright Arts Centre, on Berwick Street. There is wheelchair access and an accessible toilet with baby changing facilities also located on the ground floor, and we welcome guide and support dogs.
