A multi-talented musician, singer, composer and producer, Botswana-born, Perth-raised xmunashe has rapidly become one of Sydney’s most revered rising artists on the strength of his intimate, improvised musical happenings. This is his Vivid LIVE debut.

The performance is effortless, interesting and probably unlike anything I’ve seen in recent years. It feels authentic.

A night of intimate, genre-agnostic, improvised artistry from Sydney’s buzziest young cult star

It’s sure to be one of the most talked-about performances this year: cult Sydney artist xmunashe is bringing his intimate show to Vivid LIVE for his hotly anticipated Sydney Opera House debut.

A gifted multi-instrumentalist, singer and self-taught producer, the Botswana-born, Perth-raised artist seemed to emerge from nowhere in 2023, taking Sydney by storm with a string of performances that have been the talk of the city’s tastemakers. From a series of underground music and art happenings hosted in his own studio, to shows at Phoenix Central park and underground performances across the nation, xmunashe – alongside his multi-instrumental collaborators Jonti and Joshuah – has captivated audiences with his free-form sonic spontaneity. Their performances exude the raw, smoky ambiance of an old-school jazz night; the band will often swap instruments, improvising in sync with the energy of the crowd. Throughout it all, xmunashe effortlessly navigates the soundscape with his uniquely poetic lyricism.

Don’t miss this emerging musical talent – before he becomes a superstar.

Presented by Sydney Opera House
