Mau Power

Mau Power will present a dynamic showcase of Torres Strait culture, language and dance fused with lyrical poetry and influences of Hip Hop.

On the Forecourt

This Event is:


Driven by the passion for storytelling and inspired by the culture of Hip Hop, Mau Power is a lyrical storyteller from Thursday Island in the Torres Straits.

Mau Power is the first Traditional - Hip Hop act to emerge out of the Torres Strait and break out on the Australian music scene. With a proud heritage from the Dhoebaw Clan of the Guda Maluilgal nations, Mau Power is most known for his politically motivated inspirational anthem “Freedom” featuring Archie Roach. It is the art of storytelling that embodies the connection of two cultures that makes Mau Power a truly unique Australian act with universal appeal.

Be inspired by the Mau Power's powerful storytelling 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.
