‘Music for...’ is one of two Opera House Spotify playlist series where we ask friends of the House to curate playlists based on a theme of their choice: music for a particular moment, place or feeling.
A musical enigma on the verge of superstardom, Ghana-born Sydney-sider BLESSED brings his singular mix of hip-hop, punk rock and soul to the Joan Sutherland Theatre for his Sydney Opera House debut as part of Liminal. To mark the occasion, BLESSED has curated a playlist of emerging local talent in the R&B and hip hop space that will blow your mind. In the words of BLESSED:
“This playlist is made up of Aussie artists that the world will be listening to.”
