SUGA - the sisters are back!

Monday 29, April 2013

This month was a fantastic adventure reconnecting with Grace Vanilau and Lila Meleisea of SUGA. Suga performed at the first inaugural Melbourne Contemporary Pacific Arts Festival which was a beautiful and inspiring affair. We spent a week on the east coast of Tasmania rehearsing, recording (with Dan Cornelius at the top of a mountain overlooking only forest and sea - see the picture, courtesy of Lorraine Biggs) and sharing the island vibes with the lovely Beaumaris community! Other highlights included Seven Sisters Festival, and especially working with our sister dancer Fipe Keanu (aka Phoebe Preuss). Sisters for Sisters and Kala Box benefit concerts were special too - so great to be back in that positive Melbourne energy.
