Kahl Wallis' debut solo record will be released soon with clear messages that speak to the core values of humanity.

Kahl identifies with his grandfather’s country, the Wuthathi Nation from the white sands of Shelburne Bay in Cape York Peninsula, and his Grandmother’s mob, the Lardil people from Mornington Island in the Gulf of Carpentaria. He takes his last name 'Wallis' from his great-great-grandfather of the Polynesian islands of Wallis and Futuna.

Experience Kahl Wallis’ raw and powerful sound at Homeground 2017

Presented by the Sydney Opera House.

Homeground

For thousands of years, the land that Sydney Opera House is built on was a gathering place for the Gadigal people who danced and sang here.

Homeground continues the rich history of this site, formerly known as Tubowgule, by bringing the very best First Nations artists from around the world to the Opera House Forecourt for two free days of music, dance, workshops and markets.

Celebrate the power of contemporary artists and ancient customs under the sun and stars at Homeground 2017.
