Malu Kiai Mura Buai is a Brisbane based Torres Strait Islander family dance group, originally from Boigu Island, located in the top Western part of the Torres Strait and the most northerly inhabited island of Australia separating Cape York Peninsula from the island of New Guinea.

The performers share their traditional songs and dances that have been passed down from generation to generation based on the stories of everyday island life.

Experience the beauty of island life with Malu Kiai Mura Buai at Homeground 2017.

Presented by the Sydney Opera House.


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.
