Rako Pasifika's work is led by their love for their heritage and their ever-present connection to the Pacific Islands.

The group was founded with the goal to learn, to express, create and to nurture creativity. With a strong focus on environmental protection, Rako Pasefika aims to breathe new life into ancient art forms, encourage innovation and freedom to create new works.

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.
